Each time a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and most likely shall have nothing that is similar to the layout of your Internet site, which can be irritating for any visitor. That is the main reason why hosting companies have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, visitors will see your custom content, which could be informative or amusing, in accordance with your choice, and that will match the overall style and design of your site, so the pages won't look like they are not part of your website 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 Web Hosting

You can set up customized error pages for each of your websites without difficulty if you use any of our Linux web hosting. This could be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts and when you go there, you'll be able to set your personalized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account ahead of time and enter the links to them through the process. This function may be de-activated whenever you want and the options you'll be able to choose from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it should contain some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you may copy the whole content necessary for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support tailor-made error pages, so you'll be able to employ this feature for each domain or subdomain hosted in your account. All it takes to do this is to check out the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, to click on the Edit button associated with the particular domain/subdomain and to type the link to the custom file. You can do this individually for each and every error type. You'll be able to switch back to a default error page at any time if necessary and the change will take effect straightaway. An alternative way to get the exact same result is to put an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder of the site that you want to edit and to enter several lines of program code inside it. If you'd like to try this method, you may copy and paste the needed code from our Knowledge Base article on custom error pages, hence you will not need any programming skills or previous experience.
