If you have browsed many websites, you have probably encountered some error message now and again. An error can take place when the web hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you haven't 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 web server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages could often be aggravating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting companies allow you to use your own error pages that'll match the design of your own Internet site and which can have any content that you'd like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing remark. This kind of function can help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to set up custom made error pages for each of your websites easily if you use any of our cloud web hosting plans. This could be done from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts as soon as you go there, you could set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account in advance and enter the links to them through the process. This feature may be de-activated anytime and the options you shall be able to to pick from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Personalized error pages may 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 could copy the whole content necessary for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Incorporating your personal pages for each of the 4 error types to any site hosted from a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really basic and won't take more than a couple of clicks. As soon as you upload the files in your account, you could check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You could choose what page should show up for each and every error type. The alternatives are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and custom pages. If you choose the last option, you will need to enter the link to every single page in your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page that appears if a user encounters an error can be modified at any time. If you're more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file so as to set custom error pages too, rather than using our integrated generator instrument, and if you pick this option, the file has to be located in the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
