If a certain page on an Internet site doesn't load for some reason or if a link is not working, the visitor shall see an error page with a generic message. The page shall have nothing in common with the rest of the site, that could make the visitor leave the site. A solution in cases like this is a feature made available from some hosting companies - the option to set your own personalized error pages that shall have the same layout as your website and which may contain any text or images that you would like based on the particular error. There are four well-known errors that could occur and they involve the following so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your Internet browser sends a bad request to the hosting server and it cannot be processed; 401, if you are supposed to log in to see some webpage, but you have not done so yet; 403, if you do not have an authorization to view a specific page; and 404, if a link that you've clicked leads to a file which doesn't exist. In each of these scenarios, website visitors will be able to see your custom content as opposed to a generic error page.

Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting

You'll be able to set up custom made error pages for any of your sites without difficulty if you use any of our web hosting. This can be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and when you go there, you could set your personalized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account beforehand and enter the links to them through the process. This function may be de-activated anytime and the options you will be able to pick from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom made error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it must incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content required for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you could set custom made error pages for any of them easily via our custom Hepsia hosting CP. With only several clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you are able to modify the default setting from a system page to a customized one for any of the four error types. All you need to do is supply a link to each and every file that you've uploaded before that and then save the change. If required, you'll be able to revert this change anytime and in exactly the same way. If you'd like, you can use an .htaccess file as well. It has to be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder linked to the website whose error pages you would like to modify and the content for such a file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
