If a certain page on a site doesn't load for some reason or if a link is not functioning, the site visitor will see an error page with a generic message. The page will have nothing in common with the rest of the site, which could make the visitor leave the website. A likely solution in such a case is a function offered by some hosting service providers - the ability to set up your own personalized error pages that shall have the exact same layout as your site and that can contain any text or images you want dependent upon the particular error. There are 4 common errors which could occur and they involve these particular so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your web browser sends a bad request to the server and it can't be processed; 401, in case you are supposed to log in to see some webpage, but you haven't done so yet; 403, if you don't have an authorization to view a particular page; and 404, in case a link which you have clicked leads to a file that does not exist. In each of these scenarios, visitors will be able to see your custom content instead of a generic error page.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The custom made error pages function is available with every cloud hosting package deal which we offer and you shall be able to substitute all generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You shall have to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for every single website hosted in the account independently, so that every set of custom made pages shall have the very same design and style as the Internet site it's part of. If needed, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. An alternate way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you can simply copy the needed program code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you may set customized error pages for any of them easily via our in-house developed Hepsia hosting CP. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you are able to change the default setting from a system page to a custom one for any of the four error types. All you must do is supply a link to every single file that you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If necessary, you shall be able to revert this modification whenever you want and in exactly the same way. If you would like, you may use an .htaccess file as well. It should be created/uploaded inside the domain or subdomain folder linked to the internet site whose error pages you want to modify and the content for such a file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
