If you have looked at a lot of websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error may occur when the server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Getting such messages may sometimes be annoying because 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 will match the design of your own site and which may have any content that you would like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some witty remark. This sort of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to set up customized error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all shared website hosting solutions that we provide, so after you log in to your Hepsia CP and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll show up, you can select the kind of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a typical Apache server page or a personalized one. For the latter alternative, you need to specify the URL to the page, so when you use personalized pages, you should upload the files inside your hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file placed inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The precise syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this feature even if you do not have any previous experience.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Including your personal pages for any of the four error types to any Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very uncomplicated and shall not take more than a couple of clicks. After you upload the files to your account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You can choose what page should show up for every single error type. The options are a standard Apache web server page or a page from our system, and custom pages. In case you select the last option, you have to type the link to every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page that will appear when a user encounters an error can be changed whenever you want. If you're more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file so as to set customized error pages too, instead of using our integrated generator instrument, and if you select this option, the file must be located in the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
