Each time a page on your site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what is common for all of them is that they are generic and probably shall have absolutely nothing in common with the design of your website, which can be aggravating for any site visitor. This is the primary reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors will see your customized content, which may be informative or funny, depending on your preference, and that will match the overall style and design of your site, so the pages won't seem like they are not part of your site at all. You may 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 personalized error pages feature is available with every single cloud hosting plan that we offer and you'll be able to swap all generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will need to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for every single web site hosted in the account individually, so that every set of custom pages will have identical design and style as the site it's part of. If needed, you could always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you could simply copy the necessary code from our Help article about the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer support custom made error pages and it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you'll have to enter the links to the custom-made files via simple drop-down menus and an easy to work with interface. Needless to say, you must upload them inside your account before that. If you do not want to use this feature at some point, you could deactivate it just as fast and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd like to, you could also use an .htaccess file to enable the custom made error pages. The file needs to include a particular line of code and a link for each and every error type and you may find an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
