If you have browsed lots of Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error could occur in case the web hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to 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 is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages may sometimes be annoying as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting service providers permit you to set your own error pages which will match the layout of your own website and which could have any content that you would like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some witty comment. This sort of feature will help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting

The customized error pages feature is provided with each shared web hosting package deal 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 inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You'll 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 can do this for each site hosted inside the account independently, so that every group of personalized pages shall have the exact same layout as the website it is part of. If necessary, you may always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you could simply copy the necessary code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

With only several mouse clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you could modify the default setting from a system page to a personalized one for any of the four error types. All you must do is supply a link to each file that you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If necessary, you will be able to revert this customization whenever you want and in exactly the same way. If you would like, you may use an .htaccess file too. It has to be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder associated with the internet site whose error pages you want to modify and the content for this type of file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
