If a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages which will display, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have nothing that resembles the design of your Internet site, which could be frustrating for any website visitor. That is the reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, visitors shall see your custom made content, which may be informative or amusing, based on your choice, and which shall match the layout of your Internet site, so the pages won't look like they're not part of your Internet site at all. You can use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Hosting
The custom made error pages feature is available with each hosting package deal which we offer and you will be able to replace all the generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for each and every web site hosted inside the account independently, so that every set of personalized pages will have the exact same layout as the Internet site it's part of. If required, you could always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. A different way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you may simply copy the needed code from our Help article about this.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer support personalized error pages and it shall not take more than several mouse 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'll have to type in the links to the custom-made files via very simple drop-down menus and a user-friendly interface. Needless to say, you need to upload them in your account before that. If you do not want to employ this function at some point, you can deactivate it just as easily and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown when your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you could also use an .htaccess file to permit the customized error pages. The file has to have a particular line of code as well as a link for every error type and you may discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
