If you have looked at many Internet sites, you've probably encountered some error message now and again. An error may occur if the web hosting 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 if a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages can often be irritating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own site and that can have any content which you would like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty remark. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting

The custom made error pages function is provided with each web hosting package deal that we offer and you'll be able to swap all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You could do this for each Internet site hosted in the account individually, so that each group of customized pages shall have the very same layout as the Internet site it is part of. When necessary, you can always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in 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 servers which we offer support customized error pages and it shall not take more than a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this functionality. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your CP in which you will need to type in the links to the custom-made files through very simple drop-down menus and an easy to use interface. Keep in mind, you should upload them in your account before that. In case you don't need to use this feature at some point, you will be able to disable it just as fast and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable when your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you could also use an .htaccess file to activate the custom made error pages. The file should have a particular line of code plus a link for every error type and you can easily find an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
