If you have looked at loads of sites, you've probably come across some error message now and again. An error could occur if the hosting server cannot 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 allowed to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the server (Error 404). Receiving such messages could sometimes be frustrating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting companies permit you to apply your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and which can have any content that you would like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny comment. This kind of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting

When you get a Linux shared website hosting from our company, you will be able to set custom made error pages for your websites quickly and easily, since this function is part of all our solutions. Once you've created the files and uploaded them to your website hosting account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the specific domain or subdomain. In the pop-up that will appear, you will see drop-down options menus for all 4 types of errors and for each of them you may select an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a customized page. Should you pick the third option, you should only enter the URL to the file that you've uploaded and save the change. One other way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to include a couple of lines of code in it. In case you don't have previous experience or if you are just uncertain how to do that, you can just copy and paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that topic.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Incorporating your own pages for each of the 4 error types to any web site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very easy and won't take more than a couple of clicks. When you upload the files inside your account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You could choose what page should display for each error type. Your options are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and custom pages. In case you choose the abovementioned option, you will need to input the link to every single page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page which will appear if a user encounters an error can be changed at any time. If you are more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file to be able to set custom made error pages too, rather than using our integrated generator software instrument, and should you select this option, the file should be positioned in the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
