If a certain page on a website doesn't load for some reason or if a link is not working, the website visitor will see an error page with a generic message. The page will have nothing in common with the rest of the Internet site, which can make the visitor leave the website. A potential solution in cases like this is a feature offered by some website hosting service providers - the ability to set up your own custom error pages that will have the same design and style as your Internet site and which can contain any text or images that you'd like based on the specific error. There are four common errors which may occur and they involve these so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your world-wide web browser sends a bad request to the server and it can't be processed; 401, if you are supposed to log in to see some page, but you have not done this yet; 403, if you don't have a permission to view a specific page; and 404, if a link which you have clicked leads to a file that doesn't exist. In each of these situations, site visitors will be able to see your personalized content instead of a generic error page.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

The personalized error pages function is offered with every cloud web hosting package deal we offer and you'll be able to swap all generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will have to produce 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 CP. You can do this for every single web site hosted in the account independently, so that every set of personalized pages will have the same design as the website it is part of. If required, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you could simply copy the necessary code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you may set tailor-made error pages for any of them easily via our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only several mouse clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you are able to edit the default setting from a system page to a custom made one for any of the four error types. All you must do is provide a link to every single file that you've uploaded before that and then save the change. If necessary, you will be able to revert this modification whenever you want and in exactly the same way. If you want, you can use an .htaccess file too. It has to be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder associated with the internet site whose error pages you would like to alter and the content for such a file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
