If a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what is typical for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability shall have absolutely nothing that is similar to the layout of your site, which may be irritating for any site visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors will see your customized content, which can be informative or amusing, based on your personal preference, and that will match the style and design of your website, so the pages will not appear as if they are not part of your 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
The custom error pages function is provided with each website hosting plan we offer and you'll be able to substitute all generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You'll need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You could do this for every web site hosted in the account individually, so that every group of custom pages will have the very same design and style as the site it's part of. If necessary, you could always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. An alternate way to set personalized 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 about this.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All Linux semi-dedicated services which we supply support tailor-made error pages and it will not take more than a few clicks in your Hepsia 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 using simple drop-down menus and an intuitive interface. Of course, you need to upload them to your account before that. If you do not need to use this function at some point, you can easily deactivate it just as fast and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed when your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to permit the custom error pages. The file should have a specific line of code as well as a link for each and every error type and you may find an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
