If a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the site 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 are generic and most likely shall have nothing in common with the layout of your Internet site, which may be irritating for any site visitor. This is the primary reason why hosting companies have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors will see your unique content, which could be informative or funny, based on your taste, and which will match the style and design of your website, so the pages shall not seem like they are not part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting

You shall be able to set up customized error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all shared web hosting plans that we offer, so once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll appear, you could choose the type of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a standard Apache web server page or a personalized one. For the aforementioned alternative, you will need to assign the URL to the page, so when you use custom pages, you need to upload the files inside your Internet hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file located inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The exact syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Including your personal pages for each of the 4 error types to any Internet site hosted from a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really easy and shall not take more than a few clicks. After you upload the files inside your account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You can choose what page should display for each and every error type. Your options are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and custom made pages. Should you choose the aforementioned option, you must enter the link to each and every page in your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page that will appear when a user encounters an error can be modified whenever you want. In case you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file to set custom made error pages too, instead of using our integrated generator software instrument, and in case you pick this option, the file should be placed in the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
