If you have browsed many sites, you've probably come across some error message now and again. An error can occur if the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the web server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages could sometimes be annoying as the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to set your own error pages which will match the layout of your own Internet site and that could have any content which you'd like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty comment. This sort of function will help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting

The custom error pages feature is available with every single website hosting package which we offer and you'll be able to replace all the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You will need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can easily do this for each Internet site hosted inside the account separately, so that each set of custom made pages shall have the same design and style as the site it is part of. If necessary, you could always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other 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 may simply copy the required code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Adding your pages for each of the four error types to any website hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us shall be very basic and will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks. After you upload the files in your account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit the domains and subdomains listed there through an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You may pick what page should show up for every single error type. The choices are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and tailor-made pages. Should you select the aforementioned option, you must type the link to each page in your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page which will be displayed in case a user encounters an error can be modified anytime. If you're more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file so as to set custom made error pages too, as an alternative to using our integrated generator instrument, and if you select this option, the file should be placed in the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
