If you have looked at loads of sites, you've probably come across some error message from time to time. An error could take place in case the web hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the server (Error 404). Getting such messages can sometimes be irritating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages that will match the style of your own site and that can have any content which you'd like - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous comment. This type 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 custom error pages feature is available with each and every shared hosting plan which we offer and you'll be able to swap all generic pages with your own with no more than just a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You shall have to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for each and every site hosted inside the account independently, so that each set of custom pages shall have the very same design and style as the website it is part of. If required, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you can simply copy the required program code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service support tailor-made error pages, so you'll be able to use this function for each and every domain or subdomain hosted in your account. All it takes to do this is to go to the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, to click the Edit button related to the specific domain/subdomain and to type the link to the custom file. You can do this individually for every error type. You'll be able to switch back to a default error page anytime if needed and the change shall take effect immediately. A different way to achieve the exact same result is to put an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder of the Internet site that you would like to modify and to type in a couple of lines of program code inside it. If you would like to try this method, you can copy and paste the necessary code from our Knowledge Base article on custom error pages, which means that you shall not need any computer programming skills or previous experience.
