Each time a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what's common for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have practically nothing that resembles the design of your Internet site, which may be annoying for any site visitor. That is the primary reason why web hosting providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors will see your unique content, which may be informative or humorous, depending on your choice, and which will match the design and style of your Internet site, so the pages will not look like they are not part of your website at all. You can use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting

The custom error pages function is provided with each and every web hosting package deal which we offer and you will be able to replace all the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for every site hosted in the account independently, so that each group of custom made pages will have identical design as the site it is part of. If needed, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you may simply copy the required program code from our Help article on this subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your web sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you can set personalized error pages for any of them with ease using our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With a couple of clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you are able to modify the default setting from a system page to a personalized one for each of the four error types. All you must do is supply a link to every single file that you've uploaded before that and then save the change. If required, you shall be able to revert this change at any time and in exactly the same way. If you prefer, you can use an .htaccess file too. It must be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder belonging to the website whose error pages you intend to modify and the content for this type of file can be found in our Help article about this matter.
