If a particular page on an Internet site doesn't load for some reason or if a link is broken, the site visitor will see an error page with some generic message. The page shall have nothing in common with the rest of the Internet site, which may make the visitor leave your Internet site. A solution in this case is a function made available from some web hosting companies - the option to set your own personalized error pages which will have identical layout as your website and which can contain any text or images that you'd like based on the particular error. There are four common errors that could take place and they involve these particular so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your Internet browser sends a bad request to the web server and it can't be processed; 401, if you are supposed to log in to see some page, but you haven't done this yet; 403, if you do not have an authorization to see a certain page; and 404, if a link which you've clicked leads to a file that doesn't exist. In each 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
You'll be able to set up customized error pages for any of your Internet sites without difficulty when you use any of our cloud hosting plans. This could be done using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts and once you go there, you could set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account before you start and input the links to them during the process. This feature may be de-activated whenever you want and the options you will be able to select from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom made error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it should incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content needed for the file from our Help section.
