If a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be displayed to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and probably shall have nothing that resembles the design of your website, which could be irritating for any site visitor. This is the reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a function named Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors will see your unique content, which could be informative or amusing, depending on your preference, and which shall match the layout of your site, so the pages won't look like they are not part of your site at all. You may use this option for many errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to set up custom error pages for each of your Internet sites easily when you use any of our Linux cloud website hosting packages. This can be done using the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and when you go there, you'll be able to set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account ahead of time and enter the links to them during the process. This function can be de-activated at any time and the options you'll be able to choose from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache server page. Customized error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it must include some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you can 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, thus you'll be able to employ this feature for every single domain or subdomain hosted in your account. All it will take to do that is to visit the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, to click the Edit button associated with the given domain/subdomain and then to type in the link to the custom file. You are able to do this separately for every error type. You shall be able to switch back to a generic error page at any time if necessary and the change will take effect at once. Another way to achieve the very same result is to set an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder associated with the web site that you'd like to modify and to type in a couple of lines of program code inside it. If you'd like to try this method, you may copy and paste the required code from our Knowledge Base article on custom error pages, thus you won't need any programming skills or previous experience.
