If you have browsed loads of sites, you have probably encountered some error message now and again. An error could occur if the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in 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 which isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Encountering such messages can often be aggravating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting providers allow you to set your own error pages that'll match the design of your own website and which may have any content which you would like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous remark. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting
You'll be able to set up custom made error pages for each of your Internet sites easily when you use any of our shared web hosting plans. This can be done using the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts and once you go there, you could set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account in advance and input the links to them through the process. This feature can be de-activated at any time and the options you shall be able to to select from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it must incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you may copy the whole content necessary for the file from our Help section.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
Incorporating your own pages for any of the 4 error types to any site hosted from a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really simple and won't take more than a couple of mouse clicks. When you upload the files to your account, you can navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You could select what page should display for every single error type. Your options are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. Should you choose the aforementioned option, you have to enter the link to every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page that shows up if a user encounters an error can be changed anytime. In case you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file in order to set custom error pages as well, as an alternative to using our integrated generator software instrument, and should you pick this option, the file needs to be located inside the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
