Whenever a page on your site does not load, an error message shall be shown to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will appear, but what is standard for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have absolutely nothing in common with the design of your Internet site, which can be annoying for any site visitor. That is the main reason why web hosting companies have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom made content, which can be informative or amusing, in accordance with your personal preference, and which will match the overall style and design of your website, so the pages will not look like they are not part of your website at all. You can use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

When you order a cloud hosting plan from our company, you shall be able to set custom made error pages for your websites easily, because this function is a part of all of our solutions. After you've created the files and uploaded them to your web hosting account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the particular domain or subdomain. In the pop-up which will appear, you shall see drop-down options menus for all 4 kinds of errors and for each one of them you can choose an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a custom made page. Should you pick the 3rd option, you should only type the URL to the file you have uploaded then save the change. A different way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to add a couple of lines of code in it. If you do not have prior experience or if you're simply unsure how to do this, you may simply copy and paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that matter.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Incorporating your personal pages for any of the 4 error types to any site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us shall be very easy and shall not take more than a few clicks. After you upload the files inside your account, you can navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there through an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You could select what page should appear for each and every error type. Your options are a standard Apache web server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. If you choose the last option, you have to input the link to each and every page in your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page which will be shown in case a user encounters an error can be modified at any time. In case you are more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file so as to set tailor-made error pages too, rather than using our integrated generator software tool, and in case you select this option, the file must be positioned inside the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
