When a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and probably shall have nothing that is similar to the layout of your Internet site, which can be annoying for any site visitor. This is the primary reason why web hosting providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, site visitors will see your customized content, which could be informative or funny, depending on your preference, and that will match the design and style of your site, so the pages shall not look like they are not 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 Cloud Website Hosting
The custom made error pages function is provided with each and every cloud website hosting package we offer and you will be able to replace the generic pages with your own with no more than several clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll need to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for every web site hosted inside the account separately, so that each group of custom pages will have the same design as the website it is part of. If required, you may always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you could simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article on the subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Incorporating your own pages for any of the 4 error types to any Internet site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us shall be very simple and won't take more than a couple of clicks. Once you upload the files to your account, you can navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You may pick what page should appear for every single error type. Your options are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. In case you select the last option, you need to enter the link to each and every page in your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page that will appear if a user encounters an error can be changed anytime. If you are more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file to set tailor-made error pages as well, as an alternative to using our integrated generator software tool, and should you choose this option, the file should be positioned inside the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
