If a specific page on an Internet site doesn't load for some reason or if 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, that could make the visitor leave your website. A potential solution in cases like this is a feature offered by some website hosting providers - the option to set up your own customized error pages which will have the exact same layout as your Internet site and that can contain any images or text that you'd like depending on the specific error. There are 4 standard errors which can take place and they involve the following so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your world-wide web browser sends a bad request to the web server and it cannot be processed; 401, if you're supposed to log in to see a webpage, but you have not done so yet; 403, if you do not have an authorization to view a certain page; and 404, if a link that you've clicked leads to a file which does not exist. In any of these cases, visitors will be able to see your custom content rather than a generic error page.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting
The custom made error pages feature is provided with every single cloud hosting package deal that we offer and you'll be able to swap all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You will have to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for each Internet site hosted in the account individually, so that every group of custom pages will have the very same design and style as the Internet site it is part of. If needed, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you can simply copy the required code from our Help article about the subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of the Linux semi-dedicated service that we supply support customized error pages and it will not take more than a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you'll need to type in the links to the custom-made files via basic drop-down menus and an easy to work with interface. Needless to say, you should upload them in your account before that. If you don't want to employ this feature at some point, you will be able to disable it just as quickly and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed when your visitors encounter an error. If you'd like to, you can also use an .htaccess file to activate the personalized error pages. The file should contain a particular line of code as well as a link for every error type and you may find an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
