If you have checked out a lot of Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message now and again. An error can take place in case the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so that you can see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the web server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages can often be irritating since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting service providers permit you to set your own error pages which will match the style of your own website and that can have any content that you'd like - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous comment. Such a function shall help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting
The personalized error pages function is offered with each and every website hosting plan that we offer and you will be able to swap all the generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You will need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for every single Internet site hosted inside the account individually, so that every group of personalized pages will have the exact same design and style as the site it's part of. When necessary, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you may simply copy the needed code from our Help article about this.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated servers support custom error pages, thus you'll be able to employ this function for each domain or subdomain hosted inside your account.

You'll be able to do this individually for each and every error type. You'll be able to switch back to a standard error page at any time if necessary and the change will take effect straightaway. Another way to achieve the same exact result is to put an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder of the web site which you want to modify and to input a couple of lines of program code in it. If you want to try this method, you may copy and paste the required code from our Knowledge Base article on custom error pages, which means that you shall not need any programming skills or previous experience.
