If you have checked out many websites, you have probably come across some error message from time to time. An error may take place in case the web hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Receiving such messages can sometimes be aggravating since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting companies allow you to use your own error pages which will match the style of your own Internet site and that can have any content which you want - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny comment. This type of function can help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to set up custom made error pages for all of your sites easily if you use any of our cloud hosting. This can be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts and once you go there, you can set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account before you start and enter the links to them during the process. This feature can be de-activated whenever you want and the options you'll be able to select from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Tailor-made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it must include some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content required for the file from our Help section.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
All of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we offer support custom error pages and it shall not take more than a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel to use this functionality. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel where you'll have to type in the links to the custom-made files using simple drop-down menus and an easy to work with interface. Of course, you have to upload them in your account before that. If you don't want to employ this feature at some point, you will be able to disable it just as easily and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you could also use an .htaccess file to allow the custom made error pages. The file should have a particular line of code plus a link for each error type and you can discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
