If you have checked out loads of websites, you have probably come across some error message once in a while. An error may take place if 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 allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the server (Error 404). Getting such messages could often be aggravating since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting service providers allow you to set your own error pages which will match the design of your own Internet site and that can have any content which you would like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing remark. This type of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

You can set up custom made error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud web hosting plans that we offer, so after you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will be displayed, you can choose the type of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache server page or a custom one. For the last mentioned alternative, you will need to assign the URL to the page, so when you use custom made pages, you should upload the files in your Internet hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file positioned in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The correct 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 Hosting

Incorporating your pages for each of the 4 error types to any website hosted from a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very uncomplicated and will not take more than a few mouse clicks. When you upload the files in your account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You can choose what page should appear for each error type. The options are a standard Apache web server page or a page from our system, and tailor-made pages. In case you choose the last option, you have to type the link to each page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page that will be displayed if a user encounters an error can be changed anytime. In case you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file to be able to set customized error pages as well, instead of using our integrated generator instrument, and should you pick this option, the file must be placed inside the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
