If a specific page on a site doesn't load for some reason or in case a link is not functioning, the site visitor shall see an error page with some generic message. The page will have nothing in common with the rest of the website, that may make the visitor leave the website. A likely solution in cases like this is a function made available from some web hosting companies - the ability to set your own custom-made error pages which shall have the exact same design as your site and that could contain any images or text that you would like dependent upon the specific error. There are four standard errors which may take place and they involve the following so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your world-wide web 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 haven't done so yet; 403, if you don't have an authorization to see a certain page; and 404, in case a link which you've clicked leads to a file which doesn't exist. In each of these situations, site visitors shall be able to see your custom content as opposed to a generic error page.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting

You can set up customized error pages for all of your sites effortlessly when you use any of our Linux shared website hosting. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and when you go there, you'll be able to set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account before you start and enter the links to them through the process. This feature may be de-activated whenever you want and the options you will be able to select from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Customized error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. 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 could copy the entire content you'll need for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the semi-dedicated hosting which we supply support custom made error pages and it shall not take more than several mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your CP in which you will need to input the links to the custom-made files using basic drop-down menus and a user-friendly interface. Of course, you should upload them inside your account before that. If you don't want to use this feature at some point, you can easily deactivate it just as easily and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to activate the custom made error pages. The file needs to contain a particular line of code and a link for every single error type and you can easily find an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
