If a certain page on a site doesn't load for some reason or in case a link is broken, the visitor will see an error page with some generic message. The page will have nothing in common with the rest of the site, that may make the visitor leave your website. A possible solution in such a case is a feature made available from some website hosting companies - the ability to set your own personalized error pages which shall have identical layout as your site and that could contain any images or text that you would like dependent upon the particular error. There are four common errors which can occur and they involve these so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your world-wide web browser sends a bad request to the web server and it can't be processed; 401, in case you are supposed to log in to see some page, but you have not done so yet; 403, if you don't have a permission to see a specific page; and 404, if a link that you have clicked leads to a file that does not exist. In each of these cases, visitors will be able to see your custom made content rather than a generic error page.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting
The custom error pages feature is available with each and every cloud hosting package deal we offer and you'll be able to swap the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You will have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You may do this for every single Internet site hosted inside the account individually, so that each group of custom pages will have identical style and design as the site it is part of. If needed, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. An alternate way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you may simply copy the necessary code from our Help article about the subject.
