If you have browsed many Internet sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error may take place when the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages may sometimes be irritating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting providers permit you to apply your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own website and which may have any content that you would like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some witty comment. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Hosting

You shall be able to set up custom made error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all hosting solutions that we provide, so when you log in to your 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 that will appear, you can pick the sort of error page that should appear - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache web server page or a customized one. For the latter alternative, you will need to assign the URL to the page, so when you use custom pages, you must upload the files in your Internet hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file located in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The precise syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this feature even if you do not have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Including your own pages for each of the four error types to any Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really simple and shall not take more than a couple of clicks. Once you upload the files to your account, you could go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You may choose what page should show up for every error type. Your choices are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. In case you select the last option, you will need to input the link to each and every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page which will be shown in case a user encounters an error can be changed at any time. If you are more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file so as to set in-house developed error pages as well, rather than using our integrated generator software instrument, and should you pick this option, the file should be positioned in the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
