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

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

The custom error pages feature is available with every cloud web hosting package deal that we offer and you'll be able to replace all of the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You will have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You may do this for each website hosted inside the account independently, so that every set of custom pages shall have the very same design and style as the website it's part of. If required, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. An alternate way to set customized 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 can simply copy the required code from our Help article on this subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide support tailor-made error pages and it will not take more than several mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option is available in the Hosted Domains section of your CP in which you will have to enter the links to the custom-made files via simple drop-down menus and an easy to work with interface. Keep in mind, you should upload them in your account before that. If you don't want to employ this function at some point, you can disable it just as quickly and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown if your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you could also use an .htaccess file to permit the personalized error pages. The file should include a particular line of code plus a link for every single error type and you can easily find an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
