If you have checked out loads of websites, you have probably come across some error message every now and then. An error may take place when the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages may often be irritating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting providers permit you to use your own error pages that will match the design of your own website and which could have any content that you'd like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing comment. This type of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Hosting

The custom error pages feature is offered with every single hosting plan that we offer and you will be able to substitute all of the generic pages with your own with no more than several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You could do this for each web site hosted inside the account separately, so that each group of personalized pages will have the same design as the site it's part of. When necessary, you could 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 needed program code from our Help article on this subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account from us, you may set tailor-made error pages for each of them easily using our in-house made Hepsia hosting CP. With a few mouse clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you could change the default setting from a system page to a customized one for any of the four error types. All you should 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 modification whenever you want and in exactly the same way. If you would like, you can use an .htaccess file as well. It has to be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder linked to the site whose error pages you would want to modify and the content for this sort of file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
