Whenever a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and almost certainly shall have nothing in common with the design of your site, which may be aggravating for any visitor. That is the main reason why web hosting companies have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors will see your customized content, which can be informative or witty, based on your preference, and which shall match the style and design of your website, so the pages will not look like they are not part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting

You will be able to set up custom error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all website hosting plans that we offer, so when you log in to your Hepsia CP and visit the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will be displayed, you may select the kind of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache server page or a personalized one. For the latter alternative, you will need to specify the URL to the page, so if you use personalized pages, you have to upload the files inside your website hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file located in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The precise syntax can be found in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this function even if you don't have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account from us, you may set personalized error pages for any of them effortlessly through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With several clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you'll be able to modify the default setting from a system page to a personalized one for any of the four error types. All you need to do is provide a link to every file that you've uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you'll be able to revert this customization whenever you want and in exactly the same way. If you prefer, you can use an .htaccess file as well. It must be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder associated with the internet site whose error pages you want to alter and the content for this type of file can be found in our Help article about this matter.
