If you have looked at loads of Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message from time to time. An error can occur if the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the server (Error 404). Encountering this type of messages could often be irritating since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting companies permit you to set your own error pages that'll match the design of your own site and that could have any content which you'd like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing comment. Such a function can help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

You will be able to set up customized error pages for all of your sites with ease if you use any of our shared hosting. This could be done using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and once you go there, you can set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to 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'll be able to pick from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you can copy the whole content needed for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to set tailor-made error pages for any of them easily via our custom Hepsia hosting CP. With several clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you could modify the default setting from a system page to a custom made one for each of the four error types. All you should do is provide a link to each and every file that you've uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you shall be able to revert this customization at any time and in exactly the same way. If you'd like, you could use an .htaccess file as well. It should be created/uploaded inside the domain or subdomain folder linked to the site whose error pages you would want to alter and the content for such a file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
