If you have checked out loads of Internet sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message every now and then. An error could occur when the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering such messages could often be irritating since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting service providers allow you to set your own error pages that will match the design of your own website and which can have any content that you'd like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous comment. Such a feature will help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The customized error pages feature is available with every single cloud hosting package deal we offer and you will be able to substitute all generic pages with your own with no more than several clicks inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for each site hosted in the account separately, so that each group of custom made pages shall have the same layout as the Internet site it is part of. If required, you could always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. A different way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you can simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the semi-dedicated hosting packages which we provide support customized error pages and it shall not take more than several mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option can be found in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel in which you will have to input the links to the custom-made files through basic drop-down menus and an easy to use interface. Needless to say, you need to upload them in your account before that. If you do not want to use this feature at some point, you will be able to deactivate it just as fast and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown when your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to activate the custom made error pages. The file should include a specific line of code as well as a link for each and every error type and you can find an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
