If you have checked out a lot of sites, you've probably come across some error message now and again. An error could occur if the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages could sometimes be frustrating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting service providers allow you to apply your own error pages that will match the layout of your own website and which could have any content which you want - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing remark. This sort of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting
The custom made error pages function is offered with each and every shared web hosting package which we offer and you will be able to swap the generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You shall need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can easily do this for every website hosted in the account separately, so that each set of personalized pages shall have the very same design and style as the site it's part of. If required, you can always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. A different way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you could simply copy the required program code from our Help article about the subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to set customized error pages for each of them with ease through our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. With only a couple of mouse clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you'll be able to change the default setting from a system page to a tailor-made one for any of the 4 error types. All you have to do is supply a link to each file you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you'll be able to revert this customization anytime and in exactly the same way. If you want, you can use an .htaccess file too. It must be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder related to the website whose error pages you intend to alter and the content for this sort of file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
