If you have checked out loads of Internet sites, you have probably come across some error message every now and then. An error may take place when the server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in 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 that is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages can often be annoying as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting service providers allow you to use your own error pages that will match the layout of your own site and that may have any content which you want - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny remark. Such a feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting
The custom error pages feature is offered with every web hosting plan that we offer and you'll be able to swap all of the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting CP. You shall need to develop 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 Control Panel. You could do this for each site hosted in the account separately, so that every group of personalized pages shall have the very same design and style as the Internet site it's part of. If required, you could always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. A different way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you could simply copy the necessary code from our Help article about the subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans that we supply support tailor-made error pages and it shall not take more than a few clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your CP in which you'll have to enter the links to the custom-made files via basic drop-down menus and an intuitive interface. Needless to say, you must upload them to your account before that. In case you don't want to use this feature at some point, you can deactivate it just as easily and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable when your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to enable the customized error pages. The file needs to have a particular line of code as well as a link for every single error type and you may discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
