If you have browsed lots of websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message every now and then. An error could take place in case the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages could sometimes be annoying because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages which will match the layout of your own Internet site and which can have any content that you would like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing remark. Such a function will help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting

You'll be able to set up custom made error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all web hosting solutions that we offer, so once you log in to your Hepsia CP and check out the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will be displayed, you could select the kind of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache web server page or a custom one. For the latter alternative, you need to specify the URL to the page, so if you use custom made pages, you should upload the files inside your website hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file positioned inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The actual syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this function even if you don't have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting which we provide support tailor-made error pages and it shall not take more than several clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your CP where you'll have to input the links to the custom-made files using simple drop-down menus and a user-friendly interface. Needless to say, you have to upload them to your account before that. If you do not need to employ this function at some point, you can easily deactivate it just as quickly and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed when your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you could also use an .htaccess file to permit the customized error pages. The file has to include a particular line of code plus a link for each error type and you may discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
