If you have checked out loads of sites, you have probably come across 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 have to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages may sometimes be irritating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to set your own error pages that'll match the style of your own site and which can have any content that you'd like - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous remark. This kind of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website 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 website hosting plans which we provide, so after you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and check out the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will show up, you can pick the kind of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a standard Apache server page or a personalized one. For the latter alternative, you must specify the URL to the page, so when you use custom made pages, you should upload the files in your web hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file located in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The correct syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Adding your own pages for any of the four error types to any site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really uncomplicated and won't take more than a couple of mouse clicks.

You may choose what page should display for each error type. The choices are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and tailor-made pages. Should you select the abovementioned option, you need to type the link to every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page that will be shown when a user encounters an error can be modified whenever you want. In case you are more experienced, you may use an .htaccess file to set in-house made error pages too, instead of using our integrated generator instrument, and should you pick this option, the file needs to be placed in the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
