If you have browsed lots of websites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message every now and then. An error could take place when the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Encountering such messages may sometimes be irritating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to set your own error pages that will match the style of your own Internet site and that can have any content which you'd like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny remark. This type of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to set up customized error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud hosting solutions that we offer, so when you log in to your Hepsia CP and check out the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will appear, you can select the kind of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a standard Apache server page or a personalized one. For the latter option, you must assign the URL to the page, so when you use customized pages, you need to upload the files inside your web hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file placed inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The correct syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this function even if you don't have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Incorporating your own pages for any of the 4 error types to any Internet site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really basic and will not take more than a couple of clicks. After you upload the files in your account, you could navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there through an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You can pick what page should show up for each and every error type. The alternatives are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and custom pages. If you choose the abovementioned option, you have to type the link to each page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page which will appear when a user encounters an error can be modified whenever you want. In case you’re more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file to set personalized error pages as well, rather than using our integrated generator instrument, and if you choose this option, the file must be placed inside the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
