When a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. As there are different errors, there are different pages that'll show up, but what's typical for all of them is that they're generic and almost certainly will have practically nothing that is similar to the layout of your Internet site, which could be aggravating for any visitor. This is the reason why hosting providers have introduced a feature referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors will see your unique content, which may be informative or humorous, in accordance with your personal preference, and which will match the overall design and style of your Internet site, so the pages won't look like they're not part of your website at all. You may use this option for a number of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to set tailor-made error pages for each of them easily via our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a few mouse clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you can edit the default setting from a system page to a tailor-made one for any of the four error types. All you need to do is supply a link to every file you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you will be able to revert this customization anytime and in exactly the same way. If you prefer, you can use an .htaccess file too. It must be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder linked to the website whose error pages you would like to change and the content for this kind of file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
