If a particular page on an Internet site does not load for some reason or in case a link is not functioning, the website visitor will see an error page with some generic message. The page shall have nothing in common with the rest of the site, which can make the visitor leave your website. A solution in this case is a feature offered by some hosting providers - the ability to set your own customized error pages that shall have identical layout as your Internet site and that could contain any images or text you want dependent upon the specific error. There are 4 popular errors that may take place and they involve these so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your web browser sends a bad request to the hosting server and it cannot be processed; 401, if you're supposed to log in to see a page, but you have not done so yet; 403, if you do not have an authorization to see a specific page; and 404, in case a link that you've clicked leads to a file which doesn't exist. In any of these cases, site visitors will be able to see your customized content instead of a generic error page.

Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting

The custom made error pages function is offered with each web hosting package that we offer and you will be able to substitute all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting CP. You'll have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for every single site hosted in the account individually, so that each set of custom pages shall have the same design and style as the site it is part of. If needed, you may always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. A different way to set custom 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 could simply copy the required code from our Help article on the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you may set tailor-made error pages for any of them effortlessly via our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. With a few clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you could edit the default setting from a system page to a custom made one for any of the 4 error types. All you have to do is provide a link to every file that you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you'll be able to revert this modification anytime and in exactly the same way. If you wish, you can use an .htaccess file as well. It should be created/uploaded inside the domain or subdomain folder linked to the website whose error pages you want to modify and the content for such a file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
