If you have browsed many websites, you've probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error could occur when the server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages may often be annoying because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting service providers allow you to use your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and that can have any content that you'd like - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty comment. Such a feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

This can easily be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts and once you go there, you could set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account beforehand and input the links to them through the process. This function can be de-activated whenever you want and the options you shall be able to to choose from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache server page. Personalized error pages may be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it must include some system code and links to the pages. If you're 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 own pages for each of the 4 error types to any site hosted from a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really basic and shall not take more than a few mouse clicks. As soon as you upload the files to your account, you can 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 menus. You can select what page should appear for each error type. The options are a standard Apache server page or a page from our system, and personalized pages. If you select the last option, you must type the link to each and every page in your account, then save the change.

If you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file to be able to set customized error pages as well, as opposed to using our integrated generator tool, and should you choose this option, the file has to be positioned inside the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
