If you have browsed loads of Internet sites, you've probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error could take place if the web hosting 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 this kind of messages may often be aggravating because the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting service providers allow you to apply your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own website and that could have any content which you want - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny comment. This sort of function can help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

You'll be able to set up personalized error pages for any of your websites with ease if you use any of our Linux shared packages. This can easily be done from the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and once you go there, you could set your personalized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account ahead of time and enter the links to them during the process. This function can be de-activated at any time and the options you will be able to select from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom made error pages may be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you may copy the whole content necessary for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Adding your own pages for any of the 4 error types to any web site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very basic and will not take more than several clicks. As soon as you upload the files in your account, you could navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You could select what page should show up for each and every error type. Your options are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and custom pages. If you choose the abovementioned option, you need to type in the link to every single page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page which appears in case a user encounters an error can be modified at any time. If you are more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file in order to set custom made error pages too, instead of using our integrated generator software tool, and should you select this option, the file must be placed in the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
