If a specific page on an Internet site doesn't load for some reason or if a link is not working, the website visitor will see an error page with some generic message. The page will have nothing in common with the rest of the site, that may make the visitor leave your Internet site. A likely solution in cases like this is a function made available from some web hosting companies - the ability to set your own personalized error pages which will have the exact same design and style as your site and which can contain any images or text you want dependent upon the specific error. There are 4 common 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 hosting server and it can't be processed; 401, in case you are supposed to log in to see some page, but you haven't done this yet; 403, if you do not have a permission to see a certain page; and 404, if a link which you've clicked leads to a file which doesn't exist. In all of these scenarios, visitors shall be able to see your custom content rather than a generic error page.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting
The custom made error pages feature is provided with each cloud website hosting package deal which we offer and you will be able to swap all the generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will have to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can easily do this for each and every web site hosted in the account independently, so that every set of custom pages will have identical layout as the website it's part of. If needed, you can always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you can simply copy the needed code from our Help article about the subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All Linux semi-dedicated hosting which we offer support custom made error pages and it shall not take more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this functionality. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you will have to input the links to the custom-made files using basic drop-down menus and a time and effort saving interface. Of course, you have to upload them in your account before that. In case you don't need to employ this function at some point, you will be able to disable it just as quickly and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to allow the customized error pages. The file should include a specific line of code as well as a link for every single error type and you may discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
