If you have looked at many websites, you have probably come across some error message every now and then. An error could take place in case the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages could sometimes be irritating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting providers permit you to apply your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and that can have any content which you would like - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some funny comment. This kind of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting

You can set up custom made error pages for each of your websites easily if you use any of our shared web hosting. This can easily be done from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts as soon as you go there, you'll be able to set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account in advance and enter the links to them through the process. This feature can be de-activated whenever you want and the options you will be able to select from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it must incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content necessary for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated servers which we provide support personalized error pages and it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this functionality. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you'll have to enter the links to the custom-made files through basic drop-down menus and an easy to use interface. Of course, you should upload them in your account before that. In case you do not want to use this feature at some point, you could deactivate it just as quickly and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you'd like to, you can also use an .htaccess file to allow the custom error pages. The file needs to include a specific line of code as well as a link for every single error type and you can find an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
