Each time a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what is standard for all of them is that they're generic and probably shall have practically nothing that resembles the layout of your site, which may be aggravating for any site visitor. This is the main reason why web hosting providers have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, visitors will see your customized content, which could be informative or amusing, based on your preference, and that will match the overall design and style of your site, so the pages will not appear as if they aren't part of your site at all. You can use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

The customized error pages function is offered with every shared hosting plan we offer and you will be able to replace the generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You'll need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for every website hosted in the account separately, so that every set of customized pages shall have the exact same layout as the site it's part of. If necessary, you may always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. Another way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you could simply copy the needed program code from our Help article on this subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you can set customized error pages for each of them with ease via our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. With a few clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you'll be able to edit the default setting from a system page to a custom one for each of the 4 error types. All you need to do is supply a link to each and every file which you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If necessary, you'll be able to revert this change whenever you want and in exactly the same way. If you wish, you could use an .htaccess file as well. It must be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder related to the internet site whose error pages you would want to modify and the content for this kind of file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
