Each time a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be displayed to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that will display, but what is typical for all of them is that they are generic and most likely shall have nothing that resembles the layout of your Internet site, which may be irritating for any visitor. That is the main reason why web hosting providers have introduced a function called Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, site visitors shall see your unique content, which could be informative or funny, in accordance with your preference, and that will match the overall design and style of your Internet site, so the pages shall not look like they aren't part of your Internet 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 Cloud Hosting

When you get a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you will be able to set custom error pages for your Internet sites easily, since this function is part of all our plans. Once you have created the files and uploaded them to your website hosting account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the particular domain or subdomain. Inside the pop-up that will be displayed, you will see drop-down options menus for all four sorts of errors and for each one of them you may pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a tailor-made page. Should you choose the third option, you should only input the URL to the file which you have uploaded and save the change. Another way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to include several lines of program code in it. In case you don't have preceding experience or if you are just not sure how to do this, you could just copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that matter.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your CP in which you'll have to type in the links to the custom-made files using simple drop-down menus and a time and effort saving interface. Keep in mind, you should upload them to your account before that. If you do not need to use this function at some point, you can easily disable it just as easily and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you'd like to, you can also use an .htaccess file to permit the custom error pages. The file should include a specific line of code and a link for every error type and you may discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
