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 which will show up, but what's common for all of them is that they are generic and probably will have nothing that is similar to the layout of your website, which could be aggravating for any site visitor. This is the reason why website hosting providers have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, website visitors shall see your unique content, which could be informative or witty, based on your taste, and which will match the overall layout of your Internet site, so the pages won't look like they're 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 all of your websites easily if you use any of our shared hosting. This can be done using the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and once you go there, you can set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account ahead of time and input the links to them during the process. This function could be de-activated whenever you want and the options you will be able to choose from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Personalized error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content you'll need for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you may set personalized error pages for any of them with ease through our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With several clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you can edit the default setting from a system page to a custom one for each of the 4 error types. All you need to do is provide a link to every single file that you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If necessary, you'll be able to revert this change anytime and in exactly the same way. If you prefer, you could use an .htaccess file as well. It has to be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder associated with the site whose error pages you would like to modify and the content for this sort of file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
