Each time a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability shall have absolutely nothing in common with the design of your website, which could be frustrating for any website visitor. This is the primary reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors shall see your custom content, which can be informative or amusing, based on your taste, and that will match the design of your site, so the pages will not look like they are not part of your site at all. You may 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 Hosting
You'll be able to set up personalized error pages for any of your sites effortlessly when you use any of our Linux shared service. This can be done using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and when you go there, you'll be able to set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account before you start and enter the links to them during the process. This function could be de-activated whenever you want and the options you will be able to select from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should contain some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content needed for the file from our Help section.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of the semi-dedicated hosting service that we supply support personalized error pages and it will not take more than a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your CP where you will need to type in the links to the custom-made files through simple drop-down menus and an easy to use interface. Of course, you should upload them inside your account before that. In case you do not need to employ this function at some point, you will be able to disable it just as fast and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed when your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to activate the customized error pages. The file needs to have a particular line of code as well as a link for each and every error type and you can discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
