Whenever a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and probably will have nothing in common with the design of your Internet site, which could be annoying for any site visitor. That is the reason why web hosting companies have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, website visitors will see your unique content, which may be informative or funny, depending on your personal preference, and that will match the design and style of your site, so the pages won't seem like they are not part of your website at all. You could 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 Hosting

You can set up customized error pages for all of your Internet sites with ease when you use any of our shared hosting. This can be done from the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts and once you go there, you could set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account before you start and input the links to them through the process. This feature could be de-activated at any time and the options you'll be able to choose from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache server page. Customized error pages may be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it should incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content necessary for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Including your own pages for each of the 4 error types to any site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really simple and shall not take more than several clicks. Once you upload the files inside your account, you could navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You could pick what page should display for every error type. The choices are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. In case you select the abovementioned option, you have to type the link to every single page in your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page which will be displayed in case a user encounters an error can be changed whenever you want. In case you’re more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file so as to set customized error pages as well, instead of using our integrated generator software tool, and should you choose this option, the file needs to be positioned inside the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
