If you have browsed loads of websites, you have probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error can take place when the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the web server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages could often be frustrating since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting companies allow you to apply your own error pages that'll match the style of your own website and which may have any content that you'd like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty comment. This type of function will help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

You shall be able to set up custom made error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud web hosting solutions that we offer, so when you log in to the Hepsia CP and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll show up, you may pick the kind of error page that should appear - a default one from our system, a standard Apache server page or a customized one. For the last mentioned alternative, you need to assign the URL to the page, so if you use customized pages, you must upload the files in your website hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file placed inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The exact syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this feature even if you don't have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated servers which we offer support tailor-made error pages and it will not take more than several mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel in which you'll have to enter the links to the custom-made files through basic drop-down menus and an easy to work with interface. Needless to say, you should upload them in your account before that. In case you do not need to employ this feature at some point, you can easily disable it just as easily and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you could also use an .htaccess file to allow the custom error pages. The file should include a particular line of code and a link for every single error type and you can find an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
