If a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have absolutely nothing that resembles the design of your website, which may be irritating for any site visitor. That is the reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors will see your custom made content, which could be informative or humorous, in accordance with your taste, and that will match the overall design and style of your site, so the pages shall not seem like they aren't part of your Internet site 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 Cloud Hosting

When you order a cloud hosting service from our company, you shall be able to set custom made error pages for your Internet sites easily and quickly, since this function is part of all of our solutions. As soon as you have created the files and uploaded them to your hosting account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the specific domain or subdomain. Inside the pop-up that will appear, you will see drop-down menus for all four sorts of errors and for each one of them you can pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a tailor-made page. Should you choose the third option, you should simply type the URL to the file you have uploaded then save the change. Another way to set custom made error pages is to set up an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to include a couple of lines of code in it. In case you don't have previous experience or if you're just unsure how to do that, you may simply copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that matter.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the Linux semi-dedicated service which we offer support custom made error pages and it shall not take more than several clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this functionality.

Of course, you need to upload them to your account before that. In case you don't need to employ this feature at some point, you can deactivate it just as easily and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to activate the custom error pages. The file has to have a specific line of code as well as a link for each error type and you can easily find an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
