When a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what's common for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have absolutely nothing that resembles the design of your website, which may be aggravating for any site visitor. This is the primary reason why hosting service providers have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors will see your customized content, which can be informative or witty, depending on your preference, and that will match the overall style and design of your Internet site, so the pages won't appear as if they're not part of your Internet site 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 Shared Web Hosting

You shall be able to set up personalized error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all shared web hosting solutions that we offer, so once you log in to your Hepsia CP and go to the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will show up, you can pick the type of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a personalized one. For the latter alternative, you'll have to specify the URL to the page, so when you use personalized pages, you have to upload the files inside your website hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file located inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The precise syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this feature even if you don't have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Including your personal pages for each of the four error types to any website hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really basic and will not take more than a couple of clicks. When you upload the files inside your account, you could check out 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 can pick what page should display for every error type. Your choices are a standard Apache server page or a page from our system, and custom pages. Should you select the abovementioned option, you have to type the link to each and every page in your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page that appears in case a user encounters an error can be changed anytime. If you're more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file so as to set tailor-made error pages as well, rather than using our integrated generator software tool, and should you choose this option, the file has to be located inside the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
