Each time a page on your site does not load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what's common for all of them is that they're generic and probably will have practically nothing that is similar to the design of your site, which could be irritating for any visitor. That is the main reason why hosting service providers have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors shall see your unique content, which could be informative or humorous, depending on your personal preference, and that will match the overall style and design of your Internet site, so the pages won't seem like they aren't part of your website 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 Shared Website Hosting

When you buy a shared website hosting from us, you'll be able to set custom error pages for your websites easily and quickly, as this feature is a part of all of our plans. After you have created the files and uploaded them to your hosting account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and click on the Edit button for the particular domain or subdomain. Inside the pop-up which will be displayed, you will see drop-down options menus for all four sorts of errors and for each of them you can pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a custom made page. If you select the third option, you should just input the URL to the file you have uploaded then save the change. A different way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder and to include a few lines of code in it. If you don't have previous experience or if you're simply unsure how to do this, you can simply copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Including your own pages for each of the 4 error types to any Internet site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really easy and shall not take more than a few clicks. When you upload the files inside your account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You may choose what page should display for each and every error type. The choices are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and custom made pages. In case you pick the abovementioned option, you must enter the link to every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page that appears in case a user encounters an error can be modified anytime. In case you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file so as to set custom made error pages too, rather than using our integrated generator software instrument, and in case you select this option, the file must be placed in the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
