When a page on your website does not load, an error message shall be displayed to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what's standard for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have nothing that resembles the design of your Internet site, which may be annoying for any website visitor. This is the primary reason why hosting companies have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, site visitors will see your custom content, which can be informative or humorous, based on your preference, and that will match the design and style of your Internet site, so the pages will not appear as if they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting

You can set up custom error pages for each of your websites easily if you use any of our shared website hosting. This can easily be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts and when you go there, you can set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account beforehand and enter the links to them during the process. This function could be de-activated at any time and the options you will be able to select from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Tailor-made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it must contain some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content required for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer support custom error pages and it will not take more than a few clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this functionality. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your CP in which you'll have to type in the links to the custom-made files using basic drop-down menus and an intuitive interface. Needless to say, you must upload them inside your account before that. If you do not want to employ this function at some point, you will be able to disable it just as easily and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable when your visitors encounter an error. If you'd like to, you can also use an .htaccess file to enable the custom error pages. The file should contain a specific line of code as well as a link for each and every error type and you can easily discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
