If you have looked at a lot of Internet sites, you have probably come across some error message once in a while. An error can occur if the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages may sometimes be irritating because the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own Internet site and which may have any content that you would like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some witty remark. This sort of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to set up custom error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud hosting plans that we provide, so once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and check out the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will show up, you may pick the type of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache web server page or a customized one. For the latter alternative, you must specify the URL to the page, so if you use customized pages, you must upload the files in your Internet hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file located in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The actual syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you can set tailor-made error pages for each of them with ease using our custom Hepsia hosting CP. With a couple of clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you are able to change the default setting from a system page to a custom made one for each of the 4 error types. All you need to do is provide a link to every file that you've uploaded before that and then save the change. If required, you will be able to revert this change at any time and in exactly the same way. If you'd like, you could use an .htaccess file as well. It has to be created/uploaded inside the domain or subdomain folder related to the internet site whose error pages you would like to modify and the content for this type of file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
