Each time a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have practically nothing that resembles the layout of your website, which may be frustrating for any site visitor. That is the primary reason why hosting providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, visitors shall see your custom content, which can be informative or funny, depending on your personal preference, and that will match the design of your website, so the pages shall not seem like they aren't part of your website at all. You can use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting

The custom error pages function is provided with each web hosting package which we offer and you shall be able to replace all of the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You will need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can easily do this for every single web site hosted in the account individually, so that each group of custom pages will have the very same style and design as the Internet site it is part of. If required, you may always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. An alternate way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you can simply copy the required code from our Help article on this subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you may set customized error pages for any of them with ease via our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a couple of clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you are able to modify the default setting from a system page to a personalized one for any of the four error types. All you need to do is provide a link to every file that you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you'll be able to revert this customization at any time and in exactly the same way. If you prefer, you could use an .htaccess file as well. It has to be created/uploaded inside the domain or subdomain folder linked to the internet site whose error pages you would want to modify and the content for such a file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
