If a particular page on an Internet site does not load for some reason or in case a link is broken, the website visitor shall see an error page with a generic message. The page shall have nothing in common with the rest of the Internet site, which can make the visitor leave your website. A solution in cases like this is a feature made available from some website hosting providers - the ability to set your own custom error pages that shall have the same design and style as your site and that can contain any text or images that you would like depending on the particular error. There are 4 well-known errors which may occur and they involve these particular so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your Internet browser sends a bad request to the server and it cannot be processed; 401, if you're supposed to log in to see some page, but you haven't done this yet; 403, if you do not have a permission to view a specific page; and 404, if a link which you've clicked leads to a file that doesn't exist. In any of these cases, site visitors shall be able to see your customized content rather than a generic error page.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The personalized error pages function is available with every single cloud hosting package deal that we offer and you shall be able to substitute all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for each Internet site hosted inside the account separately, so that each set of personalized pages shall have the very same design and style as the Internet site it is part of. If necessary, you can always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you may simply copy the necessary code from our Help article on this subject.

All you need to do is provide a link to each file that you've uploaded before that and then save the change. If necessary, you shall be able to revert this change anytime and in exactly the same way. If you want, you may use an .htaccess file as well. It should be created/uploaded inside the domain or subdomain folder linked to the site 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.
