If a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what is standard for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have nothing in common with the design of your website, which may be annoying for any visitor. That is the reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors will see your custom content, which may be informative or funny, in accordance with your choice, and that will match the design and style of your site, so the pages will not seem like they aren't part of your website at all. You may use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to set up custom made error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud hosting plans which we offer, so once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll show up, you may pick the sort of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a typical Apache server page or a customized one. For the aforementioned option, you will need to specify the URL to the page, so if you use customized pages, you need to upload the files in your web hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file placed in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The precise syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated servers that we supply support tailor-made error pages and it will not take more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option is available in the Hosted Domains section of your CP where you will need to enter the links to the custom-made files using simple drop-down menus and an intuitive interface. Needless to say, you have to upload them in your account before that. If you do not want to employ this function at some point, you can disable it just as easily and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd like to, you could also use an .htaccess file to enable the custom made error pages. The file should have a particular line of code plus a link for every single error type and you can easily discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
