If you have checked out many Internet sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message from time to time. An error can occur when the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages could sometimes be irritating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting service providers permit you to apply your own error pages which will match the layout of your own Internet site and which can have any content that you'd like - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous comment. This sort of function shall help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting

The custom made error pages function is available with each shared website hosting plan we offer and you shall be able to swap all generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall need to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can easily do this for each Internet site hosted inside the account individually, so that every group of custom pages will have the very same style and design as the Internet site it's part of. When necessary, you could always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. An alternate way to set custom made 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 may simply copy the needed program code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we provide support customized error pages and it shall not take more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel in which you will need to input the links to the custom-made files using simple drop-down menus and a time and effort saving interface. Keep in mind, you have to upload them inside your account before that. In case you don't want to use this feature at some point, you can disable it just as fast and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown when your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to permit the custom error pages. The file should include a specific line of code and a link for every single error type and you can discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
