If a specific page on an Internet site doesn't load for some reason or in case a link is not working, the website visitor will 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 website. A possible solution in cases like this is a function made available from some hosting companies - the option to set up your own personalized error pages that will have exactly the same design as your site and which could contain any images or text you want based on the specific error. There are 4 standard errors that can take place and they involve the following so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your browser sends a bad request to the server and it cannot be processed; 401, if you're supposed to log in to see a page, but you have not done so yet; 403, if you don't have a permission to view a specific page; and 404, if a link that you have clicked leads to a file which doesn't exist. In each of these situations, site visitors will be able to see your customized content rather than a generic error page.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting
The personalized error pages function is provided with each cloud hosting plan that we offer and you will be able to swap all the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You shall have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can easily do this for every web site hosted in the account individually, so that every set of customized pages will have the same style and design as the site it's part of. If required, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. A different way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you could simply copy the needed code from our Help article about the subject.
