If a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what is standard for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have practically nothing that resembles the layout of your site, which may be irritating for any website visitor. This is the reason why hosting companies have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors will see your custom content, which can be informative or witty, based on your personal preference, and which shall match the style and design of your site, so the pages won't seem like they aren't part of your website at all. You can use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting
The personalized error pages function is offered with each cloud web hosting package deal which we offer and you shall be able to substitute all generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You may do this for each and every Internet site hosted in the account individually, so that each set of personalized pages will have the exact same design and style as the Internet site it is part of. If needed, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. Another way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you could simply copy the required program code from our Help article on this subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you can set custom error pages for any of them with ease via our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. With just several mouse clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you could edit the default setting from a system page to a custom one for each of the 4 error types. All you need to do is provide a link to each and every file that you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you'll be able to revert this change at any time and in exactly the same way. If you would like, you can use an .htaccess file too. It should be created/uploaded inside the domain or subdomain folder associated with the site whose error pages you want to modify and the content for this kind of file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
