If a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability will have nothing in common with the layout of your site, which may be irritating for any visitor. That is the reason why web hosting providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom content, which can be informative or witty, depending on your choice, and that will match the style and design of your website, so the pages won't look like they aren't part of your website at all. You may use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting

You'll be able to set up custom made error pages for all of your websites easily if you use any of our shared web hosting. This can easily be done using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts as soon as you go there, you can set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account beforehand and enter the links to them through the process. This feature may be de-activated whenever you want and the options you will be able to choose from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it must include some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you may copy the whole content required for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated servers which we supply support personalized error pages and it shall not take more than a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this functionality. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you'll have to input the links to the custom-made files using basic drop-down menus and a time and effort saving interface. Needless to say, you need to upload them in your account before that. In case you do not want to employ this feature at some point, you can disable it just as easily and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to enable the customized error pages. The file should include a specific line of code plus a link for each and every error type and you may find an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
