If you have browsed many websites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message every now and then. An error could occur if the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages could sometimes be aggravating because the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages that will match the design of your own website and that could have any content which you want - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty remark. This sort of function shall help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting
The customized error pages feature is available with every web hosting package we offer and you'll be able to substitute the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will have to create 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 may do this for each Internet site hosted inside the account individually, so that each set of personalized pages will have the very same design as the site it's part of. If required, you can always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. An alternate way to set custom made 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 may simply copy the needed code from our Help article on the subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
Incorporating your pages for any of the four error types to any website hosted from a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very simple and will not take more than a few mouse clicks. As soon as you upload the files inside your account, you can navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You may choose what page should display for every single error type. The options are a standard Apache server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. In case you pick the last option, you need to type the link to every page in your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page which will be shown in case a user encounters an error can be changed anytime. If you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file in order to set personalized error pages too, rather than using our integrated generator software instrument, and in case you choose this option, the file needs to be placed inside the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
