When a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what's common for all of them is that they are generic and most likely shall have absolutely nothing that is similar to the layout of your Internet site, which could be aggravating for any visitor. This is the main reason why hosting companies have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors will see your custom content, which may be informative or amusing, based on your preference, and which shall match the design and style of your Internet site, so the pages will not look like they aren't part of your Internet 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 Cloud Hosting
You can set up custom error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud hosting plans that we offer, so when you log in to your Hepsia CP and go to the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll be displayed, you can choose the kind of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache web server page or a customized one. For the last mentioned option, you have to specify 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 placed inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The correct syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this feature even if you don't have any previous experience.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting service that we offer support tailor-made error pages and it will not take more than several mouse clicks inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel in which you'll have to enter the links to the custom-made files using very simple drop-down menus and an easy to use interface. Of course, you should upload them in your account before that. If you don't need to employ this feature at some point, you can easily deactivate it just as fast and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you could also use an .htaccess file to permit the custom made error pages. The file should include a specific line of code and a link for each error type and you may discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
