If you have looked at many sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error could occur in case 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 are not permitted to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the server (Error 404). Getting this type of messages can sometimes be irritating because the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting service providers allow you to apply your own error pages that will match the style of your own website and which may have any content which you'd like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some amusing remark. This type of function can help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting

The custom made error pages function is provided with every shared web hosting package deal that we offer and you shall be able to substitute all the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for every single Internet site hosted inside the account independently, so that each set of personalized pages shall have the very same design as the website it's part of. If needed, you may always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. A different way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you could simply copy the necessary code from our Help article on this subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Adding your pages for each of the four error types to any Internet site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us shall be very uncomplicated and will not take more than several mouse clicks. After you upload the files to your account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You may select what page should appear for every single error type. The alternatives are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and tailor-made pages. If you select the last option, you must type the link to each page in your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page which appears if a user encounters an error can be modified whenever you want. If you are more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file so as to set in-house made error pages as well, instead of using our integrated generator software instrument, and if you select this option, the file has to be located inside the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
