When a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have practically nothing that is similar to the design of your Internet site, which could be frustrating for any visitor. That is the main reason why hosting providers have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors will see your custom content, which may be informative or humorous, based on your personal preference, and which will match the layout of your website, so the pages will not look like they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You could 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

You'll be able to set up personalized error pages for any of your websites easily if you use any of our shared hosting packages. This can be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts and when you go there, you can set your personalized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account beforehand and input the links to them through the process. This feature may be de-activated anytime and the options you'll be able to choose from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom error pages may be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it should incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content required for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Adding your own pages for any of the 4 error types to any site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very basic and shall not take more than several mouse clicks. When you upload the files to your account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You may choose what page should show up for each error type. The choices are a standard Apache server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. Should you choose the abovementioned option, you will need to input the link to each and every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page that will appear if a user encounters an error can be modified whenever you want. In case you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file in order to set in-house made error pages as well, as opposed to using our integrated generator instrument, and if you select this option, the file needs to be located inside the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
