Whenever a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. As 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 probably will have nothing in common with the design of your Internet site, which may be frustrating for any website visitor. That is the primary reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a function known as Custom Error Pages. For a range of different errors, visitors will see your custom made content, which could be informative or witty, in accordance with your personal preference, and which shall match the style and design of your site, so the pages won't appear as if they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You could use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

You shall be able to set up custom error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all cloud hosting solutions which we offer, so when you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll be displayed, you could pick the sort of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache server page or a custom one. For the aforementioned option, you have to assign the URL to the page, so if you use personalized pages, you need to upload the files inside your website hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file placed in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The actual syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this feature even if you do not have any previous experience.

Incorporating your personal pages for each of the 4 error types to any site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with us shall be very easy and won't take more than several mouse clicks.

If you're more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file to be able to set custom made error pages as well, as opposed to using our integrated generator software instrument, and should you choose this option, the file must be placed inside the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
