When a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what is common for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability will have practically nothing that resembles the design of your Internet site, which could be irritating for any visitor. That is the main reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom content, which can be informative or humorous, depending on your choice, and that will match the overall design and style of your website, so the pages shall not look like they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The custom made error pages function is offered with every single cloud hosting plan that we offer and you will be able to replace all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You will have to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You could do this for every single Internet site hosted in the account separately, so that every set of personalized pages shall have the very same design and style as the website it's part of. If required, you may always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. A different way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you could simply copy the needed code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Including your own pages for each of the 4 error types to any Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very basic and will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks. After you upload the files inside your account, you could go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You may pick what page should display for every error type. The choices are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and personalized pages. Should you pick the last option, you must enter the link to every single page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page that shows up in case a user encounters an error can be changed anytime. If you are more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file to set custom made error pages as well, as opposed to using our integrated generator software instrument, and should you select this option, the file should be placed inside the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
