Each time a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will appear, but what is common for all of them is that they are generic and most likely shall have nothing in common with the design of your site, which may be annoying for any visitor. This is the reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, site visitors will see your unique content, which could be informative or funny, in accordance with your preference, and that will match the overall layout of your Internet site, so the pages won't appear as if they are not part of your Internet site 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 Hosting
The custom made error pages function is available with each hosting package deal which we offer and you will be able to swap all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting CP. You shall have to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can easily do this for each and every site hosted inside the account independently, so that each set of custom made pages shall have the same design and style as the site it is part of. If needed, you could always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. An alternate way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you can simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article on the subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you could set tailor-made error pages for each of them with ease through our custom Hepsia hosting CP. With just a few clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you'll be able to modify the default setting from a system page to a personalized one for any of the four error types. All you must do is supply a link to every single file that you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If required, you'll be able to revert this change anytime and in exactly the same way. If you want, you may use an .htaccess file as well. It has to be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder belonging to the site whose error pages you would like to change and the content for this kind of file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
