If you have looked at lots of websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message from time to time. An error could take place in case the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the web server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages may sometimes be frustrating since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting service providers permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and that could have any content which you would like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous remark. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Hosting

The custom error pages feature is provided with every single hosting plan which we offer and you'll be able to swap all of the generic pages with your own with no more than several clicks from your Hepsia website hosting CP. You'll have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You could do this for every single web site hosted in the account independently, so that each group of customized pages shall have the very same design as the Internet site it is part of. If required, you can always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. Another way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you can simply copy the needed code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you could set personalized error pages for any of them easily through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a few mouse clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you are able to change the default setting from a system page to a customized one for any of the 4 error types. All you have to do is provide a link to each file which you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you'll be able to revert this change whenever you want and in exactly the same way. If you prefer, you may use an .htaccess file as well. It should be created/uploaded inside the domain or subdomain folder related to the internet site whose error pages you would want to change and the content for this sort of file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
