Each time a page on your site does not load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and probably shall have nothing that is similar to the layout of your site, which can be annoying for any website visitor. That is the reason why hosting providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors will see your custom content, which could be informative or amusing, depending on your personal preference, and which shall match the overall layout of your website, so the pages won't seem like they aren't part of your website at all. You can use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

You shall be able to set up customized error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud hosting solutions that we provide, so when you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and check out the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll show up, you could pick the type of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a customized one. For the latter alternative, you need to assign the URL to the page, so if you use personalized pages, you have to upload the files inside your hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file positioned inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The exact syntax can be found 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 Servers

Adding your own pages for each of the four error types to any website hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very uncomplicated and shall not take more than several mouse clicks. After you upload the files to your account, you could navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You could select what page should display for each error type. Your options are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and personalized pages. If you select the abovementioned option, you have to type the link to each page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page that appears if a user encounters an error can be modified at any time. If you are more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file so as to set custom made error pages as well, instead of using our integrated generator instrument, and if you select this option, the file must be located inside the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
