If you have looked at a lot of sites, you've probably encountered some error message now and again. An error can take place if the web server can't 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 permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages can often be irritating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to apply your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and which may have any content that you would like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing remark. This kind of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

The personalized error pages function is available with each shared hosting plan we offer and you'll be able to substitute all the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You will need to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for every website hosted in the account separately, so that each group of custom pages will have the exact same layout as the site it's part of. If required, you may always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you could simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to set tailor-made error pages for any of them easily through our in-house made Hepsia hosting CP. With a few clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you can change the default setting from a system page to a custom made one for any of the four error types. All you have to do is supply a link to each file that 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 prefer, you could use an .htaccess file as well. It must be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder associated with the website whose error pages you intend to modify and the content for this kind of file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
