If you have looked at many sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message every now and then. An error could occur in case the website hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages may sometimes be frustrating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting service providers permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the style of your own website and which may have any content which you'd like - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some funny comment. Such a feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting

You'll be able to set up customized error pages for all of your sites easily when you use any of our shared web hosting services. This can be done from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and when you go there, you'll be able to set your personalized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account before you start and enter the links to them during the process. This function can be de-activated whenever you want and the options you'll be able to pick from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it must contain some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content required for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Adding your pages for each of the 4 error types to any website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us shall be very simple and won't take more than several clicks. After you upload the files in your account, you could check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You can choose what page should show up for each error type. The alternatives are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and tailor-made pages. If you pick the abovementioned option, you will need to input the link to each and every page in your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page which appears when a user encounters an error can be modified at any time. If you're more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file to be able to set tailor-made error pages too, rather than using our integrated generator software instrument, and in case you select this option, the file should be located in the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
