If a particular page on a website does not load for some reason or in case a link is not functioning, the site visitor shall see an error page with a generic message. The page will have nothing in common with the rest of the website, that can make the visitor leave your website. A likely solution in this case is a feature offered by some website hosting service providers - the option to set up your own custom-made error pages that shall have exactly the same layout as your website and which may contain any images or text that you would like based on the specific error. There are four common errors which could take place and they involve these so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your world-wide web browser sends a bad request to the hosting server and it cannot be processed; 401, if you're supposed to log in to see some page, but you have not done this yet; 403, if you don't have a permission to see a particular page; and 404, in case a link which you've clicked leads to a file that does not exist. In any of these scenarios, website visitors will be able to see your personalized content instead of a generic error page.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting
The personalized error pages function is available with each and every shared website hosting plan we offer and you'll be able to replace all the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks in your Hepsia website hosting CP. You'll need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for every single site hosted in the account individually, so that each set of customized pages will have identical design as the Internet site it is part of. When necessary, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you may simply copy the required code from our Help article about the subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you may set customized error pages for each of them easily via our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. With several mouse clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you could change the default setting from a system page to a personalized one for any of the four error types. All you should do is provide a link to each and every file which you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If required, you will be able to revert this change anytime and in exactly the same way. If you would like, you may use an .htaccess file as well. It has to be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder related to the internet site whose error pages you want to modify and the content for this type of file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
