If a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. Because 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 in common with the design of your site, which could be annoying for any website visitor. That is the reason why hosting service providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors will see your custom made content, which can be informative or humorous, in accordance with your choice, and that will match the overall design and style of your Internet site, so the pages will not appear as if they aren't part of your website at all. You could use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting
You'll be able to set up custom error pages for each of your Internet sites without difficulty if you use any of our Linux shared web hosting
. This could be done through the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts and when you go there, you'll be able to set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account beforehand and enter the links to them through the process. This function can be de-activated anytime and the options you will be able to pick from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you can copy the whole content necessary for the file from our Help section.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting
that we offer support tailor-made error pages and it shall not take more than a couple of clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your CP where you'll have to enter the links to the custom-made files via simple drop-down menus and an easy to work with interface. Of course, you need to upload them to your account before that. If you do not need to employ this feature at some point, you can deactivate it just as easily and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you'd like to, you can also use an .htaccess file to enable the customized error pages. The file has to contain a specific line of code plus a link for each and every error type and you can easily discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
