If you have checked out lots of websites, you have probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error can take place if the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving such messages may often be irritating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting providers permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the design of your own site and that may have any content which you'd like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny comment. Such a feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting

The custom error pages feature is offered with each web hosting package deal which we offer and you will be able to replace all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You shall need to produce 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 CP. You could do this for each website hosted inside the account individually, so that every set of custom made pages shall have the same design and style as the Internet site it is part of. If required, you can always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you can simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article on this subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Including your personal pages for each of the 4 error types to any website hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us shall be very simple and won't take more than several mouse clicks. When you upload the files inside your account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there through an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You could pick what page should show up for each error type. The alternatives are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. If you pick the aforementioned option, you must type in the link to each and every page in your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page that will appear if a user encounters an error can be changed whenever you want. In case you’re more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file so as to set tailor-made error pages too, instead of using our integrated generator tool, and should you select this option, the file needs to be located in the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
