Whenever a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what is standard for all of them is that they're generic and most likely shall have absolutely nothing that is similar to the design of your Internet site, which can be aggravating for any visitor. This is the primary reason why hosting providers have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, site visitors will see your custom content, which may be informative or amusing, based on your personal preference, and that will match the overall style and design of your website, so the pages won't appear as if they're not part of your website at all. You can use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

You can set up custom made error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all cloud website hosting solutions that we provide, so when you log in to your Hepsia CP and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will appear, you may choose the type of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a personalized one. For the last mentioned option, you must specify the URL to the page, so when you use custom made pages, you have to upload the files inside your website hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file located inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The actual syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you may set personalized error pages for each of them with ease using our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a couple of mouse clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you are able to modify the default setting from a system page to a personalized one for any of the four error types. All you must do is supply a link to each and every file that you've uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you'll be able to revert this change whenever you want and in exactly the same way. If you prefer, you could use an .htaccess file too. It must be created/uploaded inside the domain or subdomain folder related to the site whose error pages you want to change and the content for this type of file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
