If a specific page on an Internet site doesn't load for some reason or in case a link is broken, the site visitor will see an error page with a generic message. The page shall have nothing in common with the rest of the Internet site, which may make the visitor leave your Internet site. A potential solution in cases like this is a feature made available from some hosting service providers - the option to set up your own customized error pages which will have identical layout as your site and that may contain any text or images that you would like dependent upon the particular error. There are four common errors that could occur and they involve the following so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your world-wide web browser sends a bad request to the server and it can't be processed; 401, if you are supposed to log in to see a page, but you have not done so yet; 403, if you don't have an authorization to see a certain page; and 404, in case a link which you've clicked leads to a file that doesn't exist. In any of these scenarios, visitors shall be able to see your custom made content instead of a generic error page.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The custom error pages feature is available with each and every cloud hosting package deal which we offer and you will be able to substitute all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia website 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 through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You may do this for each web site hosted in the account independently, so that each set of personalized pages shall have the exact same style and design as the Internet site it's part of. If required, you can always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you may simply copy the needed program code from our Help article about the subject.

With several clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you are able to modify the default setting from a system page to a custom one for any of the 4 error types.

If needed, you'll be able to revert this change at any time and in exactly the same way. If you prefer, you may use an .htaccess file too. It must be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder belonging to the internet site whose error pages you intend to alter and the content for such a file can be found in our Help article about this matter.
