Each time a page on your site does not load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what's common for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have absolutely nothing in common with the layout of your site, which may be annoying for any website visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom content, which may be informative or funny, depending on your taste, and which shall match the design of your Internet site, so the pages shall not seem like they aren't part of your Internet site 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 Shared Website Hosting

If you get a Linux shared website hosting from us, you shall be able to set custom made error pages for your websites easily and quickly, since this feature is part of all of our solutions. Once you've created the files and uploaded them to your website hosting account, you should check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the selected domain or subdomain. In the pop-up which will show up, you shall see drop-down menus for all 4 kinds of errors and for each of them you may pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a custom made page. Should you choose the 3rd option, you should simply type the URL to the file that you have uploaded then save the change. One other way to set personalized error pages is to set up an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder and to add a few lines of program code in it. If you do not have prior experience or if you are simply not sure how to do this, you can just copy and paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that matter.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Including your pages for any of the four error types to any website hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really simple and won't take more than several clicks. Once you upload the files inside your account, you could navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You could choose what page should appear for each error type. The options are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and personalized pages. In case you select the last option, you need to type the link to each and every page in your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page that will appear in case a user encounters an error can be modified anytime. In case you are more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file in order to set in-house developed error pages as well, as opposed to using our integrated generator tool, and in case you select this option, the file has to be located in the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
