If you have checked out lots of Internet sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error could occur in case the website hosting server cannot 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 are not allowed to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Getting such messages may often be irritating because the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own website and which may have any content that you'd like - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some amusing comment. This sort of function can help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The custom made error pages function is offered with every single cloud hosting package that we offer and you shall be able to swap the generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting CP. You'll have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for every single site hosted inside the account separately, so that each group of custom pages will have the exact same layout as the website it is part of. If needed, you could always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. Another way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you may simply copy the necessary code from our Help article on this subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Including your personal pages for each of the four error types to any site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us shall be very easy and shall not take more than several mouse clicks. When you upload the files to your account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there through an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You may select what page should display for every single error type. The alternatives are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and customized pages. Should you select the aforementioned option, you must input the link to every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page that will be shown when a user encounters an error can be changed whenever you want. If you are more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file in order to set custom made error pages as well, as opposed to using our integrated generator software instrument, and in case you select this option, the file has to be positioned inside the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
