If you have checked out loads of sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message from time to time. An error can occur when the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting this sort of messages may sometimes be aggravating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting service providers permit you to set your own error pages which will match the layout of your own website and which could have any content which you would like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous remark. This kind of function can help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

If you acquire a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you will be able to set customized error pages for your sites easily, as this function is a part of all our plans. After you've created the files and uploaded them to your web hosting account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the specific domain or subdomain. Inside the pop-up that will be displayed, you'll see drop-down menus for all four sorts of errors and for each of them you may pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a customized page. In case you choose the third option, you should simply input the URL to the file that you've uploaded then save the change. Another way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder and to add several lines of program code in it. If you do not have previous experience or if you are just not sure how to do that, you could simply copy and paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you could set customized error pages for each of them with ease via our in-house made Hepsia hosting CP. With a few clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you are able to change the default setting from a system page to a tailor-made one for any of the four error types. All you should do is supply a link to each file you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If required, you will be able to revert this customization whenever you want and in exactly the same way. If you want, you may use an .htaccess file too. It must be created/uploaded inside the domain or subdomain folder related to the site whose error pages you would like to alter and the content for this sort of file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
