If you have looked at a lot of websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error may occur in case the web 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 able to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Getting such messages could sometimes be annoying as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting companies permit you to apply your own error pages which will match the layout of your own site and which may have any content which you want - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny remark. This sort of function shall help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting

The personalized error pages feature is offered with each shared web hosting plan which we offer and you shall be able to swap all generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will have to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for every web site hosted in the account individually, so that each set of customized pages will have the same design and style as the site it is part of. If necessary, you can always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. A different 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 have never done this before, you can simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you can set tailor-made error pages for any of them easily using our custom Hepsia hosting CP. With several clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you are able to change the default setting from a system page to a personalized one for any of the 4 error types. All you need to do is supply a link to each file that you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you'll be able to revert this change at any time and in exactly the same way. If you would like, you may use an .htaccess file as well. It must be created/uploaded inside the domain or subdomain folder associated with the site whose error pages you want to modify and the content for such a file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
