If a page on your website does not load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what's common for all of them is that they are generic and probably will have absolutely nothing in common with the design of your Internet site, which may be frustrating for any website visitor. That is the reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, site visitors will see your unique content, which can be informative or humorous, in accordance with your preference, and which will match the layout of your site, so the pages shall not seem like they're not part of your website 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 Shared Hosting

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

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting services that we provide support custom error pages and it shall not take more than a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you'll need to input the links to the custom-made files through very simple drop-down menus and a time and effort saving interface. Needless to say, you have to upload them inside your account before that. If you don't need to employ 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 shown if your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to enable the custom error pages. The file needs to include a particular line of code as well as a link for each and every error type and you can discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
