If you have checked out many Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error could take place when the web hosting server can't 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 aren't allowed to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages may often be aggravating since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the style of your own site and that can have any content that you'd like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some witty comment. This kind of function will help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting

The custom error pages function is available with every single shared website hosting package we offer and you will be able to replace the generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall need to create 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 do this for each and every site hosted inside the account separately, so that every set of customized pages shall have the same design as the website it's part of. When necessary, you may always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. An alternate way to set customized 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 could simply copy the needed code from our Help article about the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated plans which we offer support personalized error pages and it shall not take more than a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this function.

Needless to say, you have to upload them to your account before that. In case you do not need to use this function at some point, you could disable it just as quickly and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you could also use an .htaccess file to activate the custom error pages. The file should contain a specific line of code and a link for every error type and you can easily discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
