Each time a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what's standard for all of them is that they are generic and almost certainly will have nothing in common with the design of your Internet site, which may be annoying for any visitor. That is the main reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors will see your unique content, which may be informative or witty, in accordance with your preference, and that will match the design of your site, so the pages won't appear as if they are not part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting
The custom made error pages function is provided with each web hosting package deal which we offer and you'll be able to swap all of the generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You will need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You may do this for each website hosted inside the account individually, so that each set of custom made pages shall have the very same design as the site it's part of. If necessary, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. Another way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you may simply copy the required code from our Help article about the subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer support custom error pages and it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this functionality. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you will need to input the links to the custom-made files through basic drop-down menus and a user-friendly interface. Needless to say, you need to upload them to your account before that. In case you don't want to use this feature at some point, you can easily deactivate it just as easily and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable if your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to enable the custom error pages. The file has to have a particular line of code and a link for every error type and you may find an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
