If a certain page on a website does not load for some reason or if a link is broken, the visitor shall see an error page with some generic message. The page will have nothing in common with the rest of the Internet site, which can make the visitor leave the site. A solution in such a case is a feature offered by some web hosting service providers - the option to set up your own personalized error pages which will have exactly the same design as your site and that can contain any text or images you want based on the specific error. There are four standard 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 web server and it cannot be processed; 401, in case you are supposed to log in to see a page, but you have not done so yet; 403, if you do not have a permission to view a specific page; and 404, if a link that you have clicked leads to a file that does not exist. In each of these situations, website visitors shall be able to see your customized content rather than a generic error page.

Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting

The custom made error pages function is available with each and every website hosting package which we offer and you will be able to substitute the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You will have to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can easily do this for every single website hosted inside the account independently, so that each set of personalized pages will have the exact same layout as the Internet site it's part of. If required, you could always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. A different way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you can simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your web sites in a semi-dedicated server account from us, you can set tailor-made error pages for each of them easily through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a couple of clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you can change the default setting from a system page to a tailor-made one for any of the four error types. All you need to do is supply a link to every single file you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If required, you will be able to revert this modification at any time and in exactly the same way. If you prefer, you may use an .htaccess file too. It has to be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder associated with the internet site whose error pages you intend to modify and the content for this type of file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
