Each time a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability shall have practically nothing that resembles the layout of your site, which may be aggravating for any visitor. This is the primary reason why hosting companies have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, visitors shall see your unique content, which could be informative or humorous, in accordance with your choice, and which will match the design of your site, so the pages will not seem like they're not part of your website at all. You could use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

You can set up customized error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all cloud web hosting plans that we offer, so after you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will appear, you can select the type of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache server page or a custom one. For the last mentioned option, you'll have to specify the URL to the page, so if you use custom pages, you must upload the files in your website hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file positioned inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The precise syntax can be found in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this feature even if you don't have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you can set personalized error pages for any of them effortlessly via our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With several clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you'll be able to change the default setting from a system page to a tailor-made one for each of the four error types. All you have to do is supply a link to each file which you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you shall be able to revert this change whenever you want and in exactly the same way. If you would like, you could use an .htaccess file as well. It has to be created/uploaded inside the domain or subdomain folder related to the site whose error pages you would like to change and the content for this sort of file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
