If you have browsed many Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error may take place if the server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting such messages can sometimes be aggravating because the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting providers allow you to apply your own error pages which will match the design of your own site and which can have any content that you want - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous remark. 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 every single shared web hosting package we offer and you will be able to swap the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will 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 Control Panel. You may do this for each site hosted in the account individually, so that each set of custom made pages shall have identical design as the website it's part of. If required, you may always go back to a default page from our system or to the 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 add a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you could simply copy the needed program code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Including your personal pages for each of the four error types to any Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really uncomplicated and won't take more than a couple of mouse clicks. Once you upload the files inside your account, you could go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You may choose what page should appear for each and every error type. The alternatives are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and personalized pages. In case you choose the aforementioned option, you need to enter the link to every single page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page which will appear in case a user encounters an error can be modified at any time. In case you’re more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file to set custom made error pages as well, instead of using our integrated generator software tool, and in case you pick this option, the file has to be placed in the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
