Whenever 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 will show up, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and in all probability will have practically nothing that resembles the layout of your Internet site, which may be annoying for any visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your unique content, which can be informative or humorous, in accordance with your taste, and that will match the layout of your website, so the pages shall not look like they are not part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting

The custom error pages feature is offered with every shared website hosting package that we offer and you'll be able to swap the generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You shall need to develop 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 Control Panel. You can do this for every website hosted in the account separately, so that every set of customized pages shall have the very same style and design as the site it is part of. If necessary, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. A different 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 never done this before, you can simply copy the needed program code from our Help article on this subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to set personalized error pages for each of them effortlessly via our custom Hepsia hosting CP. With just several clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you can edit the default setting from a system page to a customized one for any of the 4 error types. All you should do is supply a link to each and every file you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If required, you shall be able to revert this modification anytime and in exactly the same way. If you'd like, you may use an .htaccess file as well. It should be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder associated with the site whose error pages you want to change and the content for this kind of file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
