When a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have absolutely nothing in common with the design of your site, which could be frustrating for any website visitor. That is the main reason why website hosting providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, site visitors will see your unique content, which could be informative or funny, based on your choice, and which shall match the overall design and style of your site, so the pages won't seem like they're not part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

The custom made error pages function is offered with each and every shared hosting package that we offer and you shall be able to swap all generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for every website hosted in the account separately, so that every group of custom made pages shall have the same design and style as the Internet site it's part of. If necessary, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you may simply copy the needed program code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your web sites in a semi-dedicated server account from us, you could set custom error pages for any of them with ease via our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just several clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you'll be able to change the default setting from a system page to a personalized one for each of the 4 error types. All you have to do is supply a link to each and every file you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you'll be able to revert this customization at any time and in exactly the same way. If you prefer, you may use an .htaccess file too. It must be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder linked to the site whose error pages you would like to modify and the content for this type of file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
