If you have looked at many sites, you've probably come across some error message now and again. An error can take place in case the website hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the server (Error 404). Receiving such messages could often be irritating since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting service providers allow you to use your own error pages that'll match the style of your own website and which could have any content that you want - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny comment. This sort of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting
You will be able to set up custom made error pages for any of your sites with ease if you use any of our web hosting plans. This can easily be done from the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts as soon as you go there, you could set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account beforehand and enter the links to them during the process. This feature may be de-activated whenever you want and the options you'll be able to choose from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom error pages could be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you may copy the whole content needed for the file from our Help section.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of the semi-dedicated plans that we provide support customized error pages and it shall not take more than a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you will have to enter the links to the custom-made files through simple drop-down menus and a time and effort saving interface. Of course, you need to upload them to your account before that. In case you don't need to employ this feature at some point, you can easily deactivate it just as fast and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to permit the custom made error pages. The file needs to contain a specific line of code as well as a link for every error type and you can easily discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
