If a specific page on a site does not load for some reason or in case a link is broken, the website visitor will see an error page with some generic message. The page will have nothing in common with the rest of the website, that could make the visitor leave the website. A solution in this case is a feature offered by some hosting providers - the ability to set your own customized error pages which will have exactly the same design as your website and that could contain any images or text that you'd like based on the specific error. There are four common errors that can take place and they involve these particular so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your Internet browser sends a bad request to the web server and it cannot be processed; 401, if you are supposed to log in to see a webpage, but you have not done this yet; 403, if you do not have an authorization to see a certain page; and 404, when a link that you have clicked leads to a file which does not exist. In all of these situations, site visitors will be able to see your customized content rather than a generic error page.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

The personalized error pages feature is provided with every shared hosting package deal which we offer and you shall be able to substitute all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for each and every web site hosted in the account individually, so that each group of custom made pages shall have the very same design as the website 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. A different way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you can simply copy the necessary code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Including your personal pages for each of the four error types to any Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us shall be very easy and will not take more than several mouse clicks. As soon as you upload the files to your account, you could go 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 navigation. You could choose what page should appear for every single error type. The choices are a standard Apache web server page or a page from our system, and tailor-made pages. In case you pick the abovementioned 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 shows up in case a user encounters an error can be changed at any time. In case you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file in order to set tailor-made error pages as well, as an alternative to using our integrated generator software instrument, and if you choose this option, the file must be located in the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
