If you have browsed loads of Internet sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error can occur if the web server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in to 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 isn't on the server (Error 404). Receiving such messages can often be frustrating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting service providers allow you to apply your own error pages which will match the layout of your own website and that may have any content that you'd like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny comment. Such a function can help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting
You can set up customized error pages for each of your websites effortlessly when you use any of our shared web hosting. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts as soon as you go there, you could set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account beforehand and enter the links to them during the process. This function can be de-activated whenever you want and the options you will be able to pick from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Customized error pages could be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it must incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you can copy the entire content required for the file from our Help section.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of the semi-dedicated plans that we supply support personalized error pages and it shall not take more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this functionality. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel in which you'll need to type in the links to the custom-made files via basic drop-down menus and a user-friendly interface. Needless to say, you must upload them to your account before that. In case you do not want to employ this feature at some point, you will be able to deactivate it just as fast and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown when your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you could also use an .htaccess file to permit the custom error pages. The file should have a particular line of code as well as a link for each and every error type and you can find an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
