Whenever a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what is standard for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have nothing that resembles the design of your site, which can be irritating for any website visitor. This is the main reason why hosting companies have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, website visitors shall see your customized content, which may be informative or humorous, depending on your choice, and that will match the overall design and style of your Internet site, so the pages will not look like they aren't part of your website 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 Shared Hosting
You'll be able to set up customized error pages for any of your Internet sites effortlessly if you use any of our Linux shared plans. This could be done using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts as soon as you go there, you can set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account ahead of time and enter the links to them during the process. This function could be de-activated anytime and the options you will be able to select from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it must include some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you can copy the whole content needed for the file from our Help section.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of the semi-dedicated plans that we provide support tailor-made error pages and it will not take more than a couple of clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your CP in which you'll need to type in the links to the custom-made files via basic drop-down menus and a user-friendly interface. Needless to say, you must upload them in your account before that. In case you don't want to use this feature at some point, you can deactivate it just as easily and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown if your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you could also use an .htaccess file to activate the custom error pages. The file should have a specific line of code plus a link for every error type and you may find an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
