Whenever a page on your website doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages which will show up, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and most likely will have nothing that resembles the design of your site, which can be frustrating for any website visitor. That is the reason why website hosting providers have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom made content, which could be informative or witty, in accordance with your choice, and which shall match the design and style of your Internet site, so the pages shall not appear as if they are not part of your Internet site at all. You can 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 can set up customized error pages for any of your sites easily if you use any of our shared hosting plans. This can easily be done from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and when you go there, you could set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account in advance 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 pick from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache server page. Tailor-made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. 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 aren't tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content necessary for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Including your own pages for each of the 4 error types to any web site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very easy and won't take more than a couple of clicks. When you upload the files inside your account, you can navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit the domains and subdomains listed there through an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You can pick what page should show up for each error type. The options are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. In case you choose the aforementioned option, you have to enter the link to every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page that will appear when a user encounters an error can be modified anytime. If you're more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file in order to set tailor-made error pages as well, rather than using our integrated generator software tool, and should you pick this option, the file should be located in the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
