If a specific page on a site does not load for some reason or in case a link is broken, the website visitor shall see an error page with a generic message. The page will have nothing in common with the rest of the Internet site, that may make the visitor leave your Internet site. A potential solution in such a case is a feature offered by some hosting service providers - the ability to set up your own personalized error pages that will have exactly the same style and design as your Internet site and that could contain any images or text which you want depending on the specific error. There are four common errors which may occur and they involve these so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your browser sends a bad request to the web server and it cannot be processed; 401, if you're supposed to log in to see a webpage, but you have not done so yet; 403, if you don't have an authorization to see a specific page; and 404, in case a link which you've clicked leads to a file that does not exist. In each of these situations, site visitors will be able to see your customized content instead of a generic error page.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Including your personal pages for each of the 4 error types to any site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us shall be very easy and won't take more than a few mouse clicks. As soon as you upload the files in your account, you could navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there through an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You could pick what page should display for every error type. Your options are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. Should you choose the abovementioned option, you must enter the link to every single page in your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page which will be shown in case a user encounters an error can be changed at any time. If you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file in order to set in-house developed error pages too, as an alternative to using our integrated generator software tool, and should you select this option, the file has to be located inside the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
