Each time a page on your website does not load, an error message shall be shown to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and probably will have absolutely nothing in common with the layout of your site, which may be frustrating for any site visitor. That is the main reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors will see your custom made content, which can be informative or funny, based on your choice, and that will match the design and style of your Internet site, so the pages shall not seem like they aren't part of your 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 Shared Hosting

The customized error pages feature is available with each and every shared hosting plan we offer and you shall be able to substitute all generic pages with your own with no more than just a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting CP. You shall have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can easily do this for every Internet site hosted in the account independently, so that each set of custom made pages will have the same design and style as the Internet site it's part of. If necessary, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. A different way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you can simply copy the required program code from our Help article on this subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting services which we supply support custom made error pages and it shall not take more than several mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option is available in the Hosted Domains section of your CP where you'll need to enter the links to the custom-made files via simple drop-down menus and a time and effort saving interface. Of course, you need to upload them to your account before that. In case you don't want to use this feature at some point, you can easily deactivate it just as easily and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to activate the custom error pages. The file needs to have a specific line of code as well as a link for every error type and you can discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
