Custom Error Pages
Take a plunge into website error pages. Learn when they show up and why you need to configure your individual custom error pages.
If you have browsed lots of Internet sites, you have probably come across some error message now and again. An error may take place if the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Getting this type of messages may sometimes be irritating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting service providers permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the style of your own site and which may have any content which you'd like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some witty remark. This type of function can help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting
When you order a Linux website hosting
from our company, you shall be able to set custom made error pages for your Internet sites easily, as this feature is part of all of our solutions. After you've created the files and uploaded them to your website hosting account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the particular domain or subdomain. In the pop-up that will be displayed, you shall see drop-down options menus for all 4 kinds of errors and for each one of them you could choose an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a custom made page. If you select the third option, you should simply input the URL to the file that you have uploaded and save the change. A different way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to add a couple of lines of code in it. If you do not have prior experience or if you are simply unsure how to do that, you may simply copy and paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Incorporating your own pages for any of the four error types to any site hosted in a semi-dedicated server
account with us will be very easy and will not take more than a few clicks. When you upload the files inside your account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You may choose what page should appear for each error type. The alternatives are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and custom pages. If you choose the abovementioned option, you must enter the link to every single page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page which will be shown in case a user encounters an error can be modified at any time. In case you’re more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file so as to set custom error pages too, as opposed to using our integrated generator tool, and in case you choose this option, the file has to be positioned in the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
