If you have browsed a lot of sites, you have probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error may take place if the web server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting such messages could often be irritating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the style of your own website and which may have any content which you want - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous comment. This kind of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to set up custom error pages for any of your sites with ease when you use any of our cloud hosting plans. This can easily be done via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts and once you go there, you can set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account in advance and enter the links to them during the process. This feature can be de-activated at any time and the options you will be able to pick from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Customized error pages may be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put 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 entire content necessary for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of the semi-dedicated plans which we provide support customized error pages and it shall not take more than several mouse clicks inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option is included in the Hosted Domains section of your CP where you'll have to enter the links to the custom-made files using very simple drop-down menus and an easy to use interface. Needless to say, you have to upload them in your account before that. In case you do not want to use this function at some point, you can easily deactivate it just as easily and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to permit the customized error pages. The file has to have a specific line of code plus a link for each and every error type and you may find an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
