If you have checked out a lot of sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error could occur in case the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving such messages could often be annoying as the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting providers allow you to apply your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own website and which may have any content which you would like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny remark. This type of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Hosting
You'll be able to set up custom error pages for any of your sites without difficulty if you use any of our hosting plans. This could be done via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts as soon as you go there, you could set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account ahead of time and input the links to them during the process. This function may be de-activated anytime and the options you'll be able to select from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom 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 are not tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content you'll need for the file from our Help section.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of the semi-dedicated plans which we supply support customized error pages and it shall not take more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this functionality. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your CP in which you'll need to enter the links to the custom-made files via simple drop-down menus and an easy to work with interface. Needless to say, you must upload them to your account before that. In case you do not need to use this feature at some point, you can easily deactivate it just as easily and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to permit the custom made error pages. The file needs to have a particular line of code as well as a link for each error type and you may discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
