If you have checked out a lot of sites, you have probably come across some error message now and again. An error may take place in case the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the server (Error 404). Encountering such messages can often be irritating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting providers permit you to set your own error pages that will match the design of your own website and which can have any content which you would like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing remark. Such a function shall help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting

You'll be able to set up personalized error pages for any of your websites without difficulty when you use any of our website hosting packages. This can be done using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and when 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 enter the links to them through the process. This function can be de-activated at any time and the options you'll be able to choose from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Tailor-made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content required for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages support customized error pages, so you'll be able to employ this feature for each and every domain or subdomain hosted inside your account. All it takes to do that is to check out the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, to click on the Edit button linked to the given domain/subdomain and to input the link to the custom file. You are able to do this individually for every error type. You shall be able to switch back to a standard error page whenever you want if needed and the change shall take effect at once. A different way to achieve the same result is to place an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder associated with the Internet site that you would like to edit and to type in several lines of program code within it. If you need to try this method, you may copy and paste the needed code from our Knowledge Base article on custom error pages, thus you will not need any coding skills or prior experience.
