If you have checked out a lot of Internet sites, you've probably encountered some error message now and again. An error may take place if the website 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 are not able to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the web server (Error 404). Encountering this type of messages may often be irritating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting service providers allow you to set your own error pages which will match the style of your own site and that can have any content that you'd like - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing remark. This kind of function can help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The custom error pages function is available with each cloud hosting package we offer and you will be able to swap all the generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks in your Hepsia website hosting CP. You'll have to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for every web site hosted inside the account individually, so that every set of custom pages shall have the very same style and design as the website it is part of. If required, you can always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you could simply copy the required code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to set custom made error pages for any of them easily through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a couple of mouse clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you can change the default setting from a system page to a custom made one for any of the four error types. All you should do is provide a link to every file which you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If necessary, you'll be able to revert this modification at any time and in exactly the same way. If you would like, you could use an .htaccess file too. It has to be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder associated with the website whose error pages you want to modify and the content for this sort of file can be found in our Help article about this matter.
