If you have checked out many sites, you've probably come across some error message from time to time. An error could take place in case 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 aren't allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages could often be frustrating since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting service providers permit you to set your own error pages that'll match the design of your own Internet site and that may have any content which you want - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some funny comment. This sort of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting
The customized error pages function is available with each and every shared hosting plan which we offer and you'll be able to substitute the generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks from your Hepsia website hosting CP. You will have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for every single site hosted in the account individually, so that each group of customized pages will have the exact same design as the site it is part of. When necessary, you can always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you may simply copy the required code from our Help article about this.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we provide support custom made error pages and it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option is available in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel in which you will need to enter the links to the custom-made files via basic drop-down menus and an easy to work with interface. Needless to say, you have to upload them to your account before that. If you don't need to employ this function at some point, you will be able to deactivate it just as easily and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd like to, you may also use an .htaccess file to activate the personalized error pages. The file has to include a particular line of code and a link for every error type and you can discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
