If you have browsed a lot of Internet sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message from time to time. An error can occur in case the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the web server (Error 404). Encountering this type of messages could sometimes be frustrating because the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting service providers permit you to set your own error pages that will match the design of your own Internet site and that could have any content which you want - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some witty remark. This kind of function shall help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to set up customized error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all shared website hosting solutions which we offer, so once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and check out the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll appear, you can pick the kind of error page that should appear - a default one from our system, a typical Apache server page or a customized one. For the latter alternative, you must assign the URL to the page, so if you use personalized pages, you must upload the files inside your Internet hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file located inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The correct syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this feature even if you do not have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Including your pages for each of the 4 error types to any Internet site hosted from a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very basic and won't take more than several mouse clicks. Once you upload the files in your account, you can navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You could select what page should show up for each error type. Your choices are a standard Apache server page or a page from our system, and custom pages. If you pick the aforementioned option, you need to type the link to each and every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page that will be displayed if a user encounters an error can be changed whenever you want. If you are more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file so as to set custom error pages too, as opposed to using our integrated generator tool, and if you choose this option, the file must be placed inside the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
