If you have browsed lots of websites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error may occur when the server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so that you can see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the web server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages can sometimes be irritating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting providers permit you to set your own error pages which will match the layout of your own website and which could have any content that you would like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny remark. This type of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting
You can set up custom error pages for each of your sites without difficulty if you use any of our Linux website hosting
. This can easily be done through the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts as soon as you go there, you'll be able to set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account ahead of time and input the links to them during the process. This function may be de-activated at any time and the options you'll be able to select from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom made error pages may be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you can copy the entire content required for the file from our Help section.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Incorporating your personal pages for any of the 4 error types to any site hosted from a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very basic and won't take more than a few clicks. When you upload the files inside 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 through an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You can pick what page should appear for each error type. Your options are a standard Apache server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. If you pick the aforementioned option, you must enter the link to each page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page which will be shown if a user encounters an error can be changed at any time. In case you are more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file so as to set in-house developed error pages as well, as opposed to using our integrated generator instrument, and if you select this option, the file must be located inside the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
