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 will have nothing in common with the rest of the Internet site, that can make the visitor leave the site. A potential solution in such a case is a feature made available from some website hosting providers - the option to set your own personalized error pages which shall have identical design as your Internet site and that may contain any text or images that you'd like depending on the specific error. There are four well-known errors which can take place and they involve these so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your web browser sends a bad request to the web server and it cannot be processed; 401, if you are supposed to log in to see a page, but you have not done so yet; 403, if you do not have a permission to view a specific page; and 404, in case a link that you've clicked leads to a file which doesn't exist. In each of these scenarios, site visitors will be able to see your custom made content as opposed to a generic error page.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The personalized error pages feature is provided with each cloud hosting package that we offer and you will be able to replace the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting CP. You shall need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You may do this for each website hosted in the account individually, so that each set of custom made pages shall have the exact same style and design as the Internet site it is part of. If required, you can always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you can simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article about the subject.
