If a particular page on a site doesn't load for some reason or if a link is not functioning, the site 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 may make the visitor leave your Internet site. A solution in this case is a function offered by some web hosting companies - the ability to set up your own customized error pages which shall have the exact same design and style as your website and that may contain any text or images which you want based on the particular error. There are 4 popular errors that could take place 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 a web page, but you haven't done this yet; 403, if you do not have a permission to see a certain page; and 404, in case a link which you have clicked leads to a file which doesn't exist. In all of these scenarios, visitors shall be able to see your customized content instead of a generic error page.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting
The personalized error pages function is offered with each and every shared website hosting package deal which we offer and you will be able to substitute the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can easily do this for each and every web site hosted inside the account independently, so that every set of personalized pages will have the very same design and style as the site it's part of. If needed, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. An alternate way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you could simply copy the needed code from our Help article on the subject.
