Whenever a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and most likely shall have practically nothing that is similar to the design of your Internet site, which could be irritating for any visitor. That is the main reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors will see your custom content, which may be informative or witty, based on your preference, and that will match the design of your site, so the pages won't look like they're not part of your Internet site 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 Hosting

You will be able to set up customized error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all shared hosting plans that we provide, so when you log in to your Hepsia CP and check out the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will be displayed, you may choose the sort of error page that should appear - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a custom one. For the last mentioned alternative, you need to specify the URL to the page, so if you use customized pages, you must upload the files in your Internet hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file located in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The correct 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

Incorporating your personal pages for each of the 4 error types to any website hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very uncomplicated and will not take more than a few clicks. As soon as you upload the files in your account, you could navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You may select what page should display for each and every error type. Your choices are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. In case you pick the last option, you need to type in the link to every single page in your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page that will be shown in case a user encounters an error can be modified whenever you want. If you are more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file so as to set personalized error pages as well, as opposed to using our integrated generator software tool, and in case you choose this option, the file has to be located inside the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
