If a certain page on an Internet site doesn't load for some reason or if a link is not functioning, the visitor will see an error page with a generic message. The page will have nothing in common with the rest of the site, that can make the visitor leave the website. A likely solution in cases like this is a function made available from some website hosting service providers - the ability to set your own customized error pages that shall have exactly the same style and design as your website and which can contain any text or images you want dependent upon the particular error. There are four standard errors which may take place and they involve these so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your web browser sends a bad request to the web server and it cannot be processed; 401, if you are supposed to log in to see a page, but you have not done so yet; 403, if you don't have an authorization to view a specific page; and 404, when a link that you've clicked leads to a file which doesn't exist. In any of these cases, site visitors shall be able to see your custom content rather than a generic error page.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

The custom made error pages function is offered with every cloud web hosting package that we offer and you'll be able to substitute the generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks from your Hepsia website hosting CP. You'll have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for each and every website hosted in the account separately, so that each set of customized pages will have the very same style and design as the website it's part of. When necessary, you could always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have never 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 Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you can set customized error pages for any of them with ease via our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just several mouse clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you could modify the default setting from a system page to a personalized one for each of the 4 error types. All you must do is supply a link to each file that you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If required, you will be able to revert this modification whenever you want and in exactly the same way. If you want, you may use an .htaccess file as well. It has to be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder related to the website whose error pages you would like to change and the content for this sort of file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
