If you have looked at many Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error may occur in case the website hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the web server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages may sometimes be frustrating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting companies allow you to set your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own site and which may have any content that you'd like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty remark. This sort of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

You will be able to set up custom error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all shared hosting solutions that we offer, so as soon as you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and check out the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will show up, you could choose the type of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a standard Apache web server page or a custom one. For the last mentioned alternative, you will need to specify the URL to the page, so if you use custom pages, you should upload the files inside your Internet hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file placed in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The precise syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this feature even if you don't have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Including your pages for each of the 4 error types to any web site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really easy and shall not take more than a few clicks. As soon as you upload the files to your account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You can select what page should display for every error type. Your choices are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and tailor-made pages. Should you select the abovementioned option, you have to type in the link to every single page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page that appears when a user encounters an error can be modified whenever you want. In case you are more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file in order to set custom made error pages too, as an alternative to using our integrated generator software instrument, and if you select this option, the file should be located in the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
