If you have looked at loads of sites, you've probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error may occur if the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so that you can see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving such messages can sometimes be annoying since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own Internet site and that can have any content which you want - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some witty comment. This kind of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to set up custom error pages for each of your Internet sites easily if you use any of our Linux cloud hosting. This can easily be done from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts and when you go there, you can set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account in advance and input the links to them during the process. This feature may be de-activated anytime and the options you'll be able to choose from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it must incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you can copy the whole content you'll need for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you may set tailor-made error pages for each of them easily via our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With a couple of clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you can modify the default setting from a system page to a personalized one for each of the four error types. All you need to do is provide a link to every single file that you've uploaded before that and then save the change. If necessary, you'll be able to revert this change anytime and in exactly the same way. If you want, you may use an .htaccess file too. It has to be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder linked to the site whose error pages you would like to modify and the content for this sort of file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
