If a page on your Internet site does not load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. Because there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and probably shall have absolutely nothing in common with the layout of your website, which can be frustrating for any visitor. This is the main reason why website hosting service providers have introduced a feature called Custom Error Pages. For a wide variety of different errors, site visitors will see your custom made content, which may be informative or witty, based on your personal preference, and which will match the design of your site, so the pages shall not seem like they are not part of your site at all. You could use this option for a variety 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 web sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you may set custom error pages for any of them easily via our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only several clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you could change the default setting from a system page to a personalized one for each of the four error types. All you must do is provide a link to every file that you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If necessary, you'll be able to revert this change at any time and in exactly the same way. If you want, you may use an .htaccess file as well. It has to be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder related to the internet site whose error pages you want to modify and the content for this kind of file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
