When a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what is common for all of them is that they are generic and almost certainly shall have absolutely nothing in common with the layout of your Internet site, which could be aggravating for any website visitor. That is the reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom made content, which may be informative or amusing, in accordance with your personal preference, and that will match the overall style and design of your site, so the pages will not seem like they're not part of your site at all. You may use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting

The custom made error pages function is offered with every single website hosting package deal we offer and you will be able to replace the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for each and every Internet site hosted in the account independently, so that every set of custom made pages shall have the exact same design and style as the website it is part of. When necessary, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. Another way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you may simply copy the required program code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated packages support customized error pages, so you'll be able to employ this function for any domain or subdomain hosted in your account. All it takes to do that is to go to the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, to click the Edit button associated with the given domain/subdomain and then to enter the link to the custom file. You'll be able to do this independently for each and every error type. You shall be able to switch back to a generic error page at any time if needed and the change shall take effect at once. An alternative way to achieve the same result is to set an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder related to the web site which you would like to edit and to input a few lines of program code within it. If you need to try this method, you can copy and paste the needed code from our Knowledge Base article on custom error pages, thus you shall not need any computer programming skills or previous experience.
