When a page on your site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the website visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and most likely shall have practically nothing that resembles the layout of your website, which may be aggravating for any site visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your unique content, which may be informative or witty, depending on your preference, and which will match the style and design of your site, so the pages will not look like they aren't part of your site at all. You can use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to set up custom made error pages for each of your Internet sites effortlessly when you use any of our Linux cloud web hosting. This can be done using the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and once you go there, you can set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account beforehand and input the links to them through the process. This feature can be de-activated whenever you want and the options you shall be able to to pick from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content necessary for the file from our Help section.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
Incorporating your personal pages for each of the 4 error types to any website hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very simple and will not take more than several mouse 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 via an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You could pick what page should display for every error type. The options are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. In case you pick the last option, you have to type the link to each page in your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page that will appear in case a user encounters an error can be modified anytime. In case you’re more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file to set custom error pages as well, as opposed to using our integrated generator instrument, and in case you pick this option, the file needs to be positioned inside the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
