If you have looked at lots of websites, you've probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error could take place in case the web server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages could sometimes be aggravating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting service providers permit you to set your own error pages that will match the style of your own 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. Such a feature will help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

You'll be able to set up custom error pages for any of your sites effortlessly if you use any of our Linux cloud website hosting. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts and when you go there, you can set your personalized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account in advance and input the links to them during the process. This feature may be de-activated whenever you want and the options you will be able to choose from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content you'll need for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated servers that we supply support personalized error pages and it will not take more than a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you will need to input the links to the custom-made files using very simple drop-down menus and an intuitive interface. Needless to say, you need to upload them inside your account before that. If you do not need to employ this function at some point, you can deactivate it just as fast and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to enable the personalized error pages. The file needs to include a specific line of code plus a link for every error type and you can easily discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
