Whenever a page on your site doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have nothing that is similar to the design of your site, which may be irritating for any visitor. That is the primary reason why web hosting providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors shall see your customized content, which may be informative or amusing, in accordance with your choice, and which shall match the overall design of your site, so the pages won't appear as if they are not 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 Web Hosting

The personalized error pages function is offered with each and every shared web hosting package deal which we offer and you will be able to replace all generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall have to produce 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 Control Panel. You may do this for each and every site hosted inside the account separately, so that each group of customized pages shall have identical style and design as the Internet site it is part of. When necessary, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you could simply copy the needed code from our Help article on this subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Including your pages for each of the four error types to any website hosted from a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very basic and will not take more than several mouse clicks. As soon as you upload the files in your account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You may select what page should show up for every single error type. Your options are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and tailor-made pages. In case you select the last option, you have to type the link to each page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page which will be shown in case a user encounters an error can be changed whenever you want. If you're more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file so as to set tailor-made error pages as well, instead of using our integrated generator instrument, and if you pick this option, the file has to be located inside the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
