If you have checked out many Internet sites, you've probably come across some error message once in a while. An error may occur if the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must 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 if a link leads to a file that isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages can often be frustrating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting companies allow you to apply your own error pages that'll match the design of your own website and that could have any content which you want - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing comment. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to set up custom error pages for each of your Internet sites effortlessly when you use any of our shared website hosting plans. This could be done using the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts as soon as you go there, you could set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account before you start and enter the links to them during the process. This function could be de-activated anytime and the options you will be able to select from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache server page. Tailor-made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content necessary for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Adding your pages for each of the four error types to any website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really uncomplicated and won't take more than several clicks. When you upload the files in your account, you could go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You may select what page should show up for each error type. The alternatives are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and custom made pages. Should you select the last option, you will need to type in the link to every single page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page that will appear in case a user encounters an error can be modified at any time. If you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file to set tailor-made error pages as well, instead of using our integrated generator software instrument, and should you choose this option, the file has to be placed in the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
