If a particular page on a website does not load for some reason or if a link is broken, 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, that could make the visitor leave your Internet site. A likely solution in this case is a feature offered by some website hosting service providers - the option to set up your own custom-made error pages that will have the same layout as your Internet site and which can contain any images or text that you'd like dependent upon the particular error. There are 4 popular errors that can occur and they involve these 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 web page, but you have not done this yet; 403, if you don't have a permission to see a certain page; and 404, in case a link which you've clicked leads to a file which doesn't exist. In each of these scenarios, website visitors shall be able to see your personalized content instead of a generic error page.
Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting
You will be able to set up custom made error pages for any of your Internet sites effortlessly if you use any of our web hosting. This can easily be done from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts and once 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 beforehand and enter the links to them during the process. This feature could be de-activated anytime and the options you shall be able to to choose from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache server page. Customized error pages may be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it should incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content necessary for the file from our Help section.
