If you have checked out lots of websites, you've probably come across some error message once in a while. An error can occur if the server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the web server (Error 404). Encountering such messages could sometimes be aggravating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages that will match the design of your own Internet site and which may have any content that you would like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some witty comment. Such a function can help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting
You will be able to set up personalized error pages for any of your Internet sites with ease when you use any of our shared hosting. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and when you go there, you'll be able to set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account before you start and enter the links to them through the process. This function can be de-activated at any time and the options you'll be able to pick from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom made error pages may be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you may copy the whole content you'll need for the file from our Help section.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated servers that we offer support custom error pages and it will not take more than a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you will have to enter the links to the custom-made files via basic drop-down menus and a time and effort saving interface. Of course, you have to upload them to your account before that. In case you don't want to use this feature at some point, you will be able to disable it just as quickly and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable when your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to permit the custom error pages. The file needs to include a specific line of code plus a link for each and every error type and you may find an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
