When a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have absolutely nothing that resembles the layout of your site, which can be frustrating for any site visitor. That is the primary reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom made content, which may be informative or witty, depending on your taste, and which shall match the overall layout of your website, so the pages will not 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 Hosting
You can set up custom made error pages for all of your websites with ease when you use any of our Linux shared packages. This can easily be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts as soon as you go there, you'll be able to set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account before you start and input the links to them during the process. This function may be de-activated anytime and the options you shall be able to to choose from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you may copy the whole content required for the file from our Help section.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your web sites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you may set personalized error pages for each of them easily through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a few clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you can edit the default setting from a system page to a tailor-made one for any of the four error types. All you have to do is supply a link to each file that you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If necessary, you'll be able to revert this change anytime and in exactly the same way. If you wish, you can use an .htaccess file as well. It must be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder associated with the site whose error pages you want to modify and the content for this sort of file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
