If a page on your site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and most likely shall have practically nothing that is similar to the layout of your site, which could be frustrating for any website visitor. That is the reason why hosting service providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom made content, which may be informative or witty, based on your preference, and which will match the overall design and style of your Internet site, so the pages will not appear as if they're not part of your website at all. You may use this option for many 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 custom error pages for all of your sites easily when you use any of our Linux shared packages. This can easily be done from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts and when you go there, you can set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account before you start and enter the links to them through the process. This function may be de-activated whenever you want and the options you'll be able to pick from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web 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 contain some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content needed for the file from our Help section.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer support tailor-made error pages and it shall not take more than a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option is available in the Hosted Domains section of your CP in which you'll have to type in the links to the custom-made files via basic drop-down menus and an easy to work with interface. Keep in mind, you have to upload them to your account before that. If you don't want to employ this feature at some point, you can deactivate it just as quickly and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed if your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to activate the personalized error pages. The file should contain a specific line of code as well as a link for every single error type and you may find an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
