If you have looked at loads of Internet sites, you've probably come across some error message now and again. An error can take place in case the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the web server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages may sometimes be aggravating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some hosting service providers permit you to set your own error pages which will match the layout of your own website and that can have any content that you'd like - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some witty remark. This sort of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting
The custom error pages feature is offered with each website hosting package which we offer and you will be able to replace all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of clicks from your Hepsia website hosting CP. You shall need 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 Internet site hosted in the account separately, so that every set of customized pages will have the same design and style as the site it is part of. If required, you could always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you may simply copy the required code from our Help article on the subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
Adding your pages for each of the four error types to any site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really uncomplicated and shall not take more than a few clicks. Once you upload the files in your account, you could navigate to 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 menus. You can pick what page should display for every single error type. The alternatives are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and custom made pages. If you select the last option, you must enter the link to every single page in your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page that will be shown when a user encounters an error can be changed anytime. If you're more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file to set custom made error pages as well, as opposed to using our integrated generator tool, and in case you pick this option, the file should be located inside the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
