If you have looked at many Internet sites, you have probably come across some error message every now and then. An error may take place when the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages can sometimes be frustrating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages that will match the design of your own Internet site and which may have any content that you would like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny remark. This type of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting

The custom made error pages feature is available with each and every website hosting package deal that we offer and you shall be able to substitute the generic pages with your own with no more than several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for each site hosted inside the account independently, so that every group of custom made pages shall have identical design and style as the website it's part of. When necessary, you can always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you can simply copy the needed code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Incorporating your personal pages for any of the four error types to any site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very uncomplicated and will not take more than several mouse clicks. As soon as you upload the files in your account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You may choose what page should display for every single error type. The choices are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and personalized pages. In case you select the last option, you must input the link to every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page which appears when a user encounters an error can be changed whenever you want. In case you are more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file in order to set customized error pages as well, as opposed to using our integrated generator instrument, and in case you select this option, the file should be placed in the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
