Each time a page on your website doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the website visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll appear, but what is typical for all of them is that they are generic and probably will have practically nothing in common with the layout of your website, which can be annoying for any site visitor. That is the primary reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom made content, which could be informative or amusing, based on your preference, and which will match the design of your site, so the pages will not seem like they are not part of your website at all. You could use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The custom made error pages feature is provided with every single cloud hosting package we offer and you will be able to substitute all the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting CP. You shall need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for each site hosted inside the account independently, so that each set of custom made pages shall have identical design as the site it is part of. If required, you could always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. A different way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you may simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article about the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support custom made error pages, thus you'll be able to employ this function for every single domain or subdomain hosted inside your account. All it will take to do this is to go to the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, to click on the Edit button linked to the given domain/subdomain and then to enter the link to the custom-made file. You could do this separately for every error type. You shall be able to switch back to a generic error page at any time if needed and the change will take effect at once. Another way to achieve the same result is to set an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder associated with the site that you want to edit and to enter several lines of code inside it. If you would like to try this method, you may copy and paste the necessary code from our Knowledge Base article on custom error pages, hence you'll not need any programming skills or prior experience.
