If you have checked out loads of sites, you have probably encountered some error message from time to time. An error may take place in case the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving such messages can often be irritating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting companies permit you to apply your own error pages that will match the design of your own site and that may have any content which you would like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing remark. Such a function shall help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

You'll be able to set up personalized error pages for any of your websites with ease when you use any of our cloud website hosting plans. This can easily be done via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts and once you go there, you could set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account in advance 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 generic page from our system or a default Apache server page. Personalized error pages may be set with an .htaccess file as well. 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 can copy the entire content necessary for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Including your own pages for each of the 4 error types to any website hosted from a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really uncomplicated and will not take more than a few mouse clicks. Once you upload the files in your account, you could check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You can pick what page should appear for every single error type. Your options are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and personalized pages. If you pick the last option, you need to type in the link to each and every page in your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page which will be shown when a user encounters an error can be changed anytime. If you are more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file to be able to set in-house developed error pages as well, instead of using our integrated generator instrument, and should you pick this option, the file needs to be positioned in the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
