If you have checked out many Internet sites, you've probably come across some error message now and again. An error may occur if the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in 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 is not on the server (Error 404). Encountering such messages may often be irritating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting service providers allow you to use your own error pages that will match the layout of your own Internet site and which could have any content which you would like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty comment. This type of function can help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

The custom made error pages feature is available with every single cloud web hosting package deal which we offer and you will be able to swap all the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting CP. You shall have to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for every web site hosted in the account independently, so that each group of customized pages will have the exact same style and design as the Internet site it's part of. If required, you may always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other 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 may simply copy the needed program code from our Help article about the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated servers that we supply support customized error pages and it will not take more than a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this functionality. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your CP where you'll have to enter the links to the custom-made files via basic drop-down menus and an easy to use interface. Keep in mind, you must upload them inside your account before that. In case you do not need to use this feature at some point, you can easily deactivate it just as quickly and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable when your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to enable the customized error pages. The file has to contain a particular line of code plus a link for each and every error type and you can find an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
