If you have looked at a lot of sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error could take place if the hosting server cannot 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 able to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the web server (Error 404). Getting this sort of messages may often be frustrating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages which will match the design of your own website and that could have any content which you'd like - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny remark. Such a feature will help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

The custom error pages feature is provided with each and every cloud web hosting plan which we offer and you'll be able to swap all of the generic pages with your own with no more than several clicks in your Hepsia website hosting CP. You will need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can easily do this for every single Internet site hosted in the account independently, so that each group of custom pages shall have the very same style and design as the website it's part of. If necessary, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set personalized 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 can simply copy the necessary code from our Help article about the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Adding your pages for each of the four error types to any web site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really simple and will not take more than several mouse clicks. Once you upload the files to your account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You may choose what page should appear for each and every error type. Your choices are a standard Apache server page or a page from our system, and personalized pages. Should you select the abovementioned option, you will need to type the link to each page in your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page that will be shown when a user encounters an error can be modified anytime. In case you’re more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file so as to set customized error pages too, instead of using our integrated generator software instrument, and in case you pick this option, the file should be located in the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
