If you have looked at a lot of websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message every now and then. An error may occur when the web 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 aren't allowed to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages may sometimes be irritating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting providers permit you to set your own error pages that will match the layout of your own website and that may have any content that you'd like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing comment. This kind of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting

The personalized error pages feature is available with each and every shared web hosting plan which we offer and you will be able to swap all generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You shall need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for every single website hosted inside the account separately, so that each set of personalized pages will have the exact same style and design as the Internet site it is part of. When necessary, you may always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. An alternate way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you can simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article about the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Incorporating your personal pages for each of the 4 error types to any website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us shall be very easy and won't take more than a few mouse clicks. Once you upload the files in your account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You may select what page should show up for each error type. The options are a standard Apache web server page or a page from our system, and custom pages. In case you choose the aforementioned option, you must type the link to every single page in your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page which will appear if a user encounters an error can be changed at any time. In case you are more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file so as to set customized error pages too, as an alternative to using our integrated generator software instrument, and should you choose this option, the file must be placed inside the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
