Each time a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have nothing that is similar to the layout of your website, which may be irritating for any visitor. That is the main reason why website hosting providers have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors will see your unique content, which may be informative or humorous, depending on your taste, and that will match the layout of your website, so the pages will not appear as if they are not part of your website at all. You could 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 Hosting
You can set up personalized error pages for all of your Internet sites without difficulty when you use any of our Linux cloud hosting packages. This can be done from the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts and once you go there, you can set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account in advance and input the links to them through the process. This function could be de-activated anytime and the options you'll be able to pick from are a generic 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 could copy the entire content you'll need for the file from our Help section.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we supply support custom made error pages and it will not take more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your CP in which you'll have to enter the links to the custom-made files through very simple drop-down menus and an easy to work with interface. Of course, you must upload them in your account before that. If you do not want to employ this function at some point, you can deactivate it just as quickly and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to allow the custom made error pages. The file has to include a specific line of code and a link for each and every error type and you can easily discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
