Each time a page on your Internet site does not 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's common for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability will have practically nothing in common with the design of your Internet site, which can be aggravating for any website visitor. That is the primary reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, visitors shall see your custom content, which can be informative or witty, in accordance with your choice, and that will match the overall style and design of your Internet site, so the pages won't look like they aren't 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 Web Hosting

The personalized error pages function is offered with every single web hosting package deal which we offer and you will be able to substitute all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You may do this for every web site hosted inside the account separately, so that each group of custom pages shall have the very same layout as the website it's part of. When necessary, you could always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you could simply copy the needed program code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated services support custom made error pages, so you shall be able to use this feature for each and every domain or subdomain hosted inside your account. All it will take to do that is to visit the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, to click on the Edit button associated with the given domain/subdomain and then to type the link to the custom-made file. You can do this independently for each error type. You shall be able to switch back to a generic error page anytime if necessary and the change shall take effect right away. Another way to achieve the same result is to put an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder associated with the web site that you want to change and to type in a couple of lines of code within it. If you would like to try this method, you can copy and paste the necessary code from our Knowledge Base article on custom error pages, thus you'll not need any coding skills or prior experience.
