If you have browsed many sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error could occur when the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the web server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages could often be irritating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting companies allow you to use your own error pages that will match the design of your own Internet site and that can have any content which you would like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny remark. Such a function will help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

The personalized error pages feature is available with each and every shared hosting package we offer and you'll be able to replace all of the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few 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 specific domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for each and every Internet site hosted in the account individually, so that every set of custom made pages will have the same layout as the site it is part of. When necessary, you may always go 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 add a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you can simply copy the required code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Including your own pages for any of the 4 error types to any web site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really basic and won't take more than a couple of mouse clicks. Once you upload the files to your account, you could go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You may choose what page should appear for every single error type. Your options are a standard Apache server page or a page from our system, and personalized pages. If you pick the abovementioned option, you need to input the link to every page in your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page that will be displayed in case a user encounters an error can be changed whenever you want. If you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file in order to set custom error pages too, as opposed to using our integrated generator software instrument, and should you select this option, the file needs to be placed in the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
