Whenever a page on your website does not load, an error message will be displayed to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and probably shall have practically nothing in common with the design of your Internet site, which can be frustrating for any visitor. This is the reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors will see your custom content, which may be informative or witty, based on your taste, and which will match the overall style and design of your Internet site, so the pages will not appear as if they're not part of your site at all. You may use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting

You will be able to set up personalized error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all website hosting solutions that we provide, so once you log in to your Hepsia CP and check out the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will show up, you may choose the sort of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache web server page or a custom one. For the aforementioned alternative, you will need to assign the URL to the page, so if you use personalized pages, you have to upload the files in your website hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file placed in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The precise syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this function even if you don't have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the semi-dedicated services which we offer support tailor-made error pages and it will not take more than several clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your CP where you'll have to type in the links to the custom-made files via simple drop-down menus and an easy to work with interface. Of course, you have to upload them inside your account before that. In case you do not need to use this function at some point, you could deactivate it just as fast and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to enable the customized error pages. The file has to contain a specific line of code and a link for every single error type and you can discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
