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

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

You shall be able to set up custom error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud web hosting plans which we provide, so once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will be displayed, you can choose the type of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache web server page or a personalized one. For the latter option, you have to assign the URL to the page, so when you use custom pages, you must upload the files in your hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file positioned in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The correct syntax can be seen 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 Hosting

If you host your web sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you can set custom made error pages for any of them with ease via our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. With a few clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you could modify the default setting from a system page to a tailor-made one for any of the 4 error types. All you must do is supply a link to each and every file which you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you'll be able to revert this customization anytime and in exactly the same way. If you would like, you can use an .htaccess file as well. It has to be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder associated with the internet site whose error pages you would like to modify and the content for this sort of file can be found in our Help article about this matter.
