If you have checked out lots of websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error may take place when the website hosting server can't 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 some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages may often be annoying since the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting service providers allow you to apply your own error pages that'll match the design of your own site and which could have any content which you'd like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny comment. This kind of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting
The customized error pages feature is available with every single web hosting package deal that we offer and you'll be able to substitute all the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for each and every site hosted inside the account separately, so that every set of personalized pages shall have the exact same design and style as the website it is part of. If needed, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you can simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article about the subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
Adding your pages for any of the 4 error types to any website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us shall be very basic and will not take more than a few mouse clicks. After you upload the files to your account, you could check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You could choose what page should show up for each and every error type. The alternatives are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and personalized pages. Should you choose the abovementioned option, you have to type the link to every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page which will be displayed in case a user encounters an error can be changed anytime. In case you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file to set personalized error pages as well, instead of using our integrated generator instrument, and in case you select this option, the file should be placed in the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
