If you have browsed loads of websites, you have probably encountered some error message from time to time. An error can take place when the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the web server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages can often be aggravating since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages that'll match the design of your own site and which may have any content that you'd like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing remark. This sort of function shall help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

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

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting which we offer support custom made error pages and it shall not take more than a few clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you'll have to input the links to the custom-made files through simple drop-down menus and a time and effort saving interface. Of course, you need to upload them in your account before that. In case you do not want to use this feature at some point, you will be able to disable it just as quickly and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you could also use an .htaccess file to allow the personalized error pages. The file needs to contain a particular line of code and a link for each error type and you can find an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
