When a page on your website does not load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what's standard for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly shall have nothing that is similar to the design of your site, which can be frustrating for any site visitor. This is the reason why web hosting service providers have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your customized content, which could be informative or humorous, depending on your taste, and that will match the style and design of your website, so the pages shall not appear as if they are not part of your site at all. You may use this option for numerous errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting

You can set up personalized error pages for all of your sites easily if you use any of our Linux shared website hosting plans. This can be done from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts and once you go there, you can set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account ahead of time and input the links to them during the process. This feature may be de-activated at any time and the options you will be able to pick from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Tailor-made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it must contain some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content needed for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your web sites in a semi-dedicated server account from us, you can set custom error pages for any of them easily through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a few mouse clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you'll be able to modify the default setting from a system page to a custom one for each of the four error types. All you have to do is supply a link to every single file that you've uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you will be able to revert this modification anytime and in exactly the same way. If you prefer, you may use an .htaccess file as well. It should be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder linked to the website whose error pages you would like to modify and the content for this kind of file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
