If you have browsed loads of Internet sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message every now and then. An error may occur if the 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 permitted to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this type of messages could often be frustrating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting service providers allow you to apply your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own site and which could have any content which you want - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing remark. Such a function will help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting

The personalized error pages function is provided with each shared website hosting plan we offer and you shall be able to swap the generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can easily do this for every web site hosted in the account independently, so that every group of personalized pages shall have the exact same layout as the Internet site it's part of. If required, you may always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you can simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated hosting plans which we offer support customized error pages and it shall not take more than a couple of clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this functionality. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you will need to input the links to the custom-made files using very simple drop-down menus and an easy to work with interface. Keep in mind, you need to upload them inside your account before that. In case you don't need to use this feature at some point, you could disable it just as fast and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed when your visitors encounter an error. If you'd like to, you can also use an .htaccess file to enable the custom made error pages. The file has to contain a particular line of code plus a link for every error type and you can discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
