If you have looked at many websites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error can take place in case the server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so that you can see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages may sometimes be frustrating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages which will match the style of your own Internet site and which may have any content that you would like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous comment. This type of function will help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting
The customized error pages function is offered with each and every shared hosting package we offer and you will be able to swap the generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You will have to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for every site hosted in the account individually, so that each set of custom made pages shall have identical style and design as the website it is part of. If necessary, you can always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. An alternate way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you could simply copy the required program code from our Help article on the subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account from us, you may set custom made error pages for any of them with ease through our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. With only several clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you could edit the default setting from a system page to a custom made one for each of the 4 error types. All you should do is provide a link to every file you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If required, you will be able to revert this customization at any time and in exactly the same way. If you'd like, you can use an .htaccess file as well. It should be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder linked to the site whose error pages you want to change and the content for this kind of file can be found in our Help article about this matter.
