If you have browsed loads of Internet sites, you've probably encountered some error message from time to time. An error could take place when the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Getting this type of messages may often be aggravating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages which will match the style of your own site and that can have any content that you want - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty remark. Such a function will help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

You'll be able to set up customized error pages for all of your websites easily when you use any of our Linux cloud website hosting services. This can be done via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts and when you go there, you could set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account ahead of time and enter the links to them during the process. This feature may be de-activated at any time and the options you will be able to pick from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom made error pages could be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should contain some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you could copy the whole content required for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Incorporating your pages for any of the four error types to any Internet site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really easy and won't take more than several clicks. Once you upload the files inside your account, you can navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You may select what page should appear for every error type. The options are a standard Apache web server page or a page from our system, and custom made pages. In case you select the abovementioned option, you will need to type the link to each page in your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page that will appear in case a user encounters an error can be modified at any time. If you are more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file to be able to set custom error pages too, as an alternative to using our integrated generator software instrument, and should you pick this option, the file must be placed in the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
