If a certain page on a site does not load for some reason or in case a link is not functioning, the visitor will see an error page with some generic message. The page will have nothing in common with the rest of the site, which can make the visitor leave your Internet site. A solution in cases like this is a function offered by some web hosting service providers - the option to set your own personalized error pages which will have identical design and style as your Internet site and that may contain any images or text that you would like dependent upon the particular error. There are 4 popular errors which can occur and they involve the following so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your Internet browser sends a bad request to the hosting server and it cannot be processed; 401, if you are supposed to log in to see a web page, but you haven't done this yet; 403, if you do not have an authorization to see a specific page; and 404, when a link which you have clicked leads to a file which doesn't exist. In all of these situations, visitors shall be able to see your custom made content instead of a generic error page.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting
The personalized error pages feature is available with every single cloud hosting package deal we offer and you'll be able to substitute the generic pages with your own with no more than several clicks from your Hepsia website hosting CP. You will have 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 Control Panel. You may do this for each site hosted in the account separately, so that every group of personalized pages will have the very same design and style as the site it is part of. If required, you can always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. Another way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you could simply copy the necessary code from our Help article on the subject.
