If you have browsed loads of websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message every now and then. An error may take place if the server cannot 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 are not able to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the server (Error 404). Getting this sort of messages could often be aggravating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting companies allow you to apply your own error pages that will match the style of your own site and that can have any content which you would like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous comment. This kind of function will help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Hosting
The custom made error pages feature is provided with each hosting plan that we offer and you will be able to substitute all of the generic pages with your own with no more than several clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will need to produce 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 CP. You can easily do this for every website hosted inside the account separately, so that each group of custom pages shall have the very same style and design as the website it's part of. If needed, you could always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. An alternate way to set custom made 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 may simply copy the required program code from our Help article about the subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we supply support custom made error pages and it will not take more than a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this functionality. The option is available in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel in which you'll need to enter the links to the custom-made files using basic drop-down menus and an easy to use interface. Of course, you must upload them inside your account before that. In case you do not need to use this function at some point, you can easily disable it just as fast and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd like to, you may also use an .htaccess file to activate the personalized error pages. The file needs to contain a particular line of code plus a link for every error type and you may find an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
