If a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and in all probability will have absolutely nothing that is similar to the layout of your site, which may be irritating for any site visitor. This is the primary reason why hosting service providers have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, visitors will see your custom made content, which can be informative or humorous, in accordance with your choice, and that will match the design and style of your Internet site, so the pages shall not look like they aren't part of your site at all. You may 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
The personalized error pages function is offered with every single shared hosting package which we offer and you will be able to replace all generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting CP. You'll have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for every website hosted inside the account individually, so that every group of custom made pages will have identical design as the Internet site it's part of. If required, you could always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. Another way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you could simply copy the necessary code from our Help article about this.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Including your pages for any of the 4 error types to any website hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very uncomplicated and won't take more than a few clicks. As soon as you upload the files to your account, you could check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there through an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You can select what page should show up for each error type. Your choices are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and custom pages. In case you select the abovementioned option, you have to type the link to each page in your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page that shows up when a user encounters an error can be modified at any time. In case you’re more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file to set in-house made error pages as well, as opposed to using our integrated generator instrument, and should you choose this option, the file has to be located inside the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
