If you have browsed lots of Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error could take place when the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages may often be annoying as the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting service providers allow you to apply your own error pages that will match the design of your own website and that can have any content that you want - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny remark. This kind of function shall help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting

The custom error pages feature is offered with each and every shared web hosting package deal which we offer and you will be able to replace all generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting CP. You will need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for each site hosted inside the account separately, so that every group of personalized pages will have the same design as the website it's part of. If needed, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you could simply copy the needed code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your web sites in a semi-dedicated server account from us, you could set custom made error pages for any of them effortlessly through our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just several mouse clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you can change the default setting from a system page to a custom one for each of the four error types. All you have to do is supply a link to every single file which you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If required, you'll be able to revert this customization at any time and in exactly the same way. If you wish, you can use an .htaccess file as well. It must be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder related to the site whose error pages you would want to modify and the content for such a file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
