If a specific page on a site doesn't load for some reason or in case a link is not working, the visitor shall see an error page with a generic message. The page will have nothing in common with the rest of the website, that can make the visitor leave your website. A possible solution in this case is a feature made available from some website hosting service providers - the option to set your own personalized error pages which will have the same style and design as your website and that can contain any text or images that you'd like based on the specific error. There are four common errors which can take place and they involve these so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your web browser sends a bad request to the server and it cannot be processed; 401, if you're supposed to log in to see a webpage, but you haven't done so yet; 403, if you don't have a permission to view a certain page; and 404, when a link that you have clicked leads to a file which does not exist. In each of these cases, website visitors shall be able to see your custom made content instead of a generic error page.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

The custom made error pages feature is available with each cloud web hosting plan which we offer and you will be able to swap all the generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for each and every Internet site hosted inside the account individually, so that every group of custom pages shall have the same design as the Internet site it is part of. When necessary, you could always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. A different way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you can simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you could set custom made error pages for each of them easily via our custom Hepsia hosting CP. With only a few clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you are able to change the default setting from a system page to a custom made one for any of the 4 error types. All you have to do is provide a link to every single file that you've uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you will be able to revert this modification anytime and in exactly the same way. If you prefer, you could use an .htaccess file too. It should be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder belonging to the site whose error pages you intend to change and the content for such a file can be found in our Help article about this matter.
