Each time a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have practically nothing in common with the layout of your website, which may be aggravating for any site visitor. This is the reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors will see your customized content, which can be informative or humorous, based on your personal preference, and which will match the overall style and design of your site, so the pages will not look like they're not part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to set up personalized error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all cloud web hosting solutions which we offer, so as soon as you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will be displayed, you may select the kind of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a standard Apache web server page or a customized one. For the latter alternative, you will need to assign the URL to the page, so if you use custom pages, you have to upload the files in your website hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file positioned inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The exact syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages support tailor-made error pages, so you will be able to employ this function for each domain or subdomain hosted inside your account. All it will take to do this is to check out the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, to click the Edit button associated with the given domain/subdomain and to type the link to the custom file. You'll be able to do this independently for each error type. You shall be able to switch back to a default error page at any time if required and the change will take effect right away. A different way to get the very same result is to set an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder related to the Internet site which you'd like to change and to enter a couple of lines of code in it. If you'd like to try this method, you may copy and paste the required code from our Knowledge Base article on custom error pages, therefore you will not need any coding skills or previous experience.
