Custom Error Pages
Learn what a Custom Error Page is, what role does it serve and ways to set one.
If a certain page on a website does not load for some reason or if a link is not functioning, the website visitor will see an error page with some generic message. The page will have nothing in common with the rest of the website, which may make the visitor leave the website. A potential solution in this case is a function offered by some web hosting providers - the option to set your own personalized error pages that shall have the exact same design and style as your site and that may contain any images or text which you want dependent upon the specific error. There are 4 well-known errors which could occur and they involve these particular so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your world-wide web 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 webpage, but you have not done this yet; 403, if you don't have an authorization to view a certain page; and 404, when a link which you've clicked leads to a file that doesn't exist. In all of these scenarios, visitors shall be able to see your custom made content as opposed to a generic error page.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to set up custom made error pages for each of your Internet sites with ease when you use any of our shared website hosting. This could be done from the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts as soon as you go there, you'll be able to set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account before you start and input the links to them during the process. This function may be de-activated whenever you want and the options you will be able to pick from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it must include some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you can copy the whole content you'll need for the file from our Help section.
