If a particular page on an Internet site doesn't load for some reason or if a link is not functioning, the visitor will see an error page with some generic message. The page will have nothing in common with the rest of the website, which could make the visitor leave your site. A likely solution in such a case is a function made available from some website hosting service providers - the option to set up your own custom-made error pages that shall have exactly the same design and style as your Internet site and that can contain any images or text that you would like based on the specific error. There are four well-known errors that may take place and they involve these 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're supposed to log in to see some web page, but you haven't done this yet; 403, if you don't have a permission to view a certain page; and 404, if a link which you have clicked leads to a file that does not exist. In all of these scenarios, website visitors shall be able to see your personalized content as opposed to a generic error page.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting
You can set up personalized error pages for any of your Internet sites effortlessly if you use any of our Linux cloud hosting. This can easily be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts as soon as you go there, you can set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account beforehand and input the links to them during the process. This function could be de-activated at any time and the options you shall be able to to select from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you could copy the whole content needed for the file from our Help section.
