If a specific page on a site does not load for some reason or if a link is not working, the visitor will see an error page with a generic message. The page shall have nothing in common with the rest of the website, which may make the visitor leave your Internet site. A solution in such a case is a feature offered by some hosting service providers - the ability to set your own customized error pages that shall have the exact same style and design as your Internet site and that may contain any images or text which you want dependent upon the specific error. There are 4 well-known errors which can take place and they involve the following so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your web browser sends a bad request to the hosting server and it cannot be processed; 401, if you are supposed to log in to see some page, but you haven't done this yet; 403, if you don't have a permission to see a specific page; and 404, when a link that you've clicked leads to a file which does not exist. In each of these cases, site visitors will be able to see your custom made content rather than a generic error page.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting
The customized error pages function is available with every cloud website hosting plan we offer and you'll be able to substitute all the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of mouse clicks from 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 particular domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for each and every Internet site hosted inside the account independently, so that each group of customized pages will have identical style and design as the Internet site it is part of. When necessary, you could always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. A different 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 haven't done this before, you can simply copy the needed program code from our Help article on this subject.
