When a page on your website does not load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that will show up, but what's common for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability will have nothing that is similar to the design of your website, which can be annoying for any visitor. That is the primary reason why web hosting companies have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, site visitors shall see your custom made content, which can be informative or amusing, in accordance with your personal preference, and which will match the overall style and design of your site, so the pages won't appear as if they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting
You can set up custom made error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all cloud web hosting plans which we provide, so after you log in to your Hepsia CP and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will show up, you can select the kind of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a standard Apache web server page or a customized one. For the last mentioned alternative, you will need to specify the URL to the page, so if you use custom made pages, you must upload the files inside your website hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file placed in 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 you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Adding your personal pages for any of the 4 error types to any Internet site hosted from a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very simple and won't take more than a couple of clicks. When you upload the files in your account, you could check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You could choose what page should show up for each error type. The choices are a standard Apache web server page or a page from our system, and custom made pages. If you pick the aforementioned option, you must type the link to each and every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page which appears in case a user encounters an error can be modified anytime. If you are more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file to be able to set in-house made error pages too, rather than using our integrated generator instrument, and in case you select this option, the file needs to be located inside the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
