If you have browsed lots of Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message from time to time. An error can occur if the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages can often be frustrating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting companies allow you to use your own error pages that'll match the style of your own website and that could have any content which you'd like - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny remark. This kind of function shall help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting
The personalized error pages feature is provided with every single shared hosting plan which we offer and you will be able to swap all generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You shall need to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You could do this for every Internet site hosted inside the account separately, so that each group of custom pages will have the same design as the Internet site it is part of. When necessary, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you can simply copy the required program code from our Help article about this.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to set tailor-made error pages for each of them easily via our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With several mouse clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you can edit the default setting from a system page to a custom one for any of the four error types. All you must do is provide a link to each and every file you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you will be able to revert this modification whenever you want and in exactly the same way. If you wish, you may use an .htaccess file as well. It should be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder related to the site whose error pages you want to alter and the content for this kind of file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
