If a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what's common for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have nothing in common with the design of your website, which can be annoying for any website visitor. That is the primary reason why web hosting providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, visitors shall see your unique content, which may be informative or amusing, depending on your choice, and which will match the design of your site, so the pages won't appear as if they are not part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Hosting

You can set up personalized error pages for each of your sites easily if you use any of our hosting plans. This can easily be done through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts and once you go there, you could set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account before you start and enter the links to them during the process. This function may be de-activated at any time and the options you'll be able to select from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache server page. Personalized error pages may be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it should contain some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you can copy the entire content necessary for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Including your own pages for each of the 4 error types to any Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very basic and shall not take more than a couple of mouse clicks. Once you upload the files in your account, you could check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You could select what page should display for every error type. The choices are a standard Apache server page or a page from our system, and personalized pages. If you select the last option, you must type in the link to every page in your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page that will be displayed in case a user encounters an error can be changed whenever you want. In case you are more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file to be able to set in-house made error pages too, rather than using our integrated generator software instrument, and should you select this option, the file must be placed inside the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
