If a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and most likely will have nothing that is similar to the design of your Internet site, which could be aggravating for any site visitor. This is the primary reason why web hosting companies have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, site visitors shall see your customized content, which may be informative or witty, depending on your choice, and that will match the overall layout of your site, so the pages shall not seem like they are not part of your website at all. You could use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

You shall be able to set up custom error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all shared hosting plans that we provide, so when you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll show up, you could select the type of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache web server page or a custom one. For the aforementioned option, you will need to assign the URL to the page, so if you use custom made pages, you need to upload the files inside your web hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file placed inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The actual syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this function 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 could set custom made error pages for each of them effortlessly using our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

All you need to do is provide a link to each and every file which you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If necessary, you will be able to revert this customization anytime and in exactly the same way. If you would like, you may use an .htaccess file as well. It should be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder associated with the website whose error pages you want to alter and the content for this type of file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
