If a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be displayed to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that will appear, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have absolutely nothing that is similar to the design of your site, which may be frustrating for any site visitor. That is the primary reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, website visitors will see your custom content, which could be informative or amusing, depending on your choice, and that will match the design and style of your website, so the pages will not look like they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

If you get a Linux cloud hosting package from us, you shall be able to set custom error pages for your websites easily and quickly, since this feature is part of all of our packages. The moment you've created the files and uploaded them to your web hosting account, you should check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the specific domain or subdomain. In the pop-up which will appear, you will see drop-down menus for all four types of errors and for each one of them you may select an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a custom made page. If you choose the 3rd option, you should only enter the URL to the file that you've uploaded then save the change. A different way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to add a couple of lines of code in it. If you don't have prior experience or if you are simply uncertain how to do that, you can simply copy and paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we offer support tailor-made error pages and it will not take more than a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option is available in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you will need to enter the links to the custom-made files through basic drop-down menus and an easy to use interface. Keep in mind, you have to upload them to your account before that. If you do not want to use this function at some point, you can deactivate it just as quickly and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you'd like to, you could also use an .htaccess file to allow the customized error pages. The file needs to have a particular 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.
