If you have looked at a lot of Internet sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error may occur when the website hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the web server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages can sometimes be annoying since the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting providers allow you to apply your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and that could have any content which you'd like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing remark. Such a feature will 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 can set up custom error pages for each of your Internet sites effortlessly if you use any of our shared web hosting plans. This can easily be done using the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and once you go there, you'll be able to set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account before you start and input the links to them during the process. This function can be de-activated whenever you want and the options you will be able to select from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it must include 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 Servers

Adding your pages for each of the 4 error types to any Internet site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very easy and won't take more than a couple of clicks. When you upload the files in your account, you could navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You could choose what page should show up for each and every error type. Your choices are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and personalized pages. In case you choose the aforementioned option, you have to enter the link to each and every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page which will be displayed when a user encounters an error can be changed whenever you want. In case you’re more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file to be able to set custom error pages too, as opposed to using our integrated generator software instrument, and if you select this option, the file needs to be located in the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
