If a particular page on an Internet site doesn't load for some reason or if a link is broken, the visitor shall see an error page with some generic message. The page shall have nothing in common with the rest of the Internet site, that can make the visitor leave the site. A potential solution in this case is a feature offered by some web hosting service providers - the ability to set your own customized error pages that shall have exactly the same design as your website and that could contain any text or images that you'd like depending on the specific error. There are 4 popular errors which can occur and they involve these particular so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your web browser sends a bad request to the server and it cannot be processed; 401, if you're supposed to log in to see a page, but you haven't done this yet; 403, if you don't have a permission to view a certain page; and 404, if a link that you have clicked leads to a file that doesn't exist. In any of these cases, site visitors will be able to see your customized content rather than a generic error page.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

The customized error pages feature is available with every shared hosting package deal we offer and you'll be able to substitute the generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You will have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can easily do this for each Internet site hosted inside the account individually, so that each group of personalized pages shall have the exact same design as the website it's part of. If required, you could always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you can simply copy the required program code from our Help article on this subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer support tailor-made error pages and it will not take more than a few clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you'll need to type in the links to the custom-made files via very simple drop-down menus and a time and effort saving interface. Keep in mind, you must upload them to your account before that. If you do not want to employ this feature at some point, you can easily disable it just as easily and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed when your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to activate the customized error pages. The file needs to include a particular line of code plus a link for every single error type and you can find an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
