If you have looked at lots of sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error could take place when the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the web server (Error 404). Receiving such messages may often be annoying because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting service providers permit you to set your own error pages which will match the design of your own website and that could have any content that you would like - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous remark. This type of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting
The customized error pages function is offered with each and every cloud website hosting package that we offer and you will be able to substitute all of the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You'll need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for every single site hosted inside the account independently, so that every group of customized pages will have the same design and style as the Internet site it is part of. If required, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you can simply copy the needed code from our Help article on this subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers support custom error pages, thus you'll be able to use this feature for each and every domain or subdomain hosted in your account. All it takes to do that is to check out the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, to click the Edit button associated with the specific domain/subdomain and to input the link to the custom file. You'll be able to do this individually for every error type. You'll be able to switch back to a standard error page anytime if required and the change will take effect straightaway. Another way to get the exact same result is to place an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder of the website which you want to edit and to enter several lines of code in it. If you need to try this method, you can copy and paste the required code from our Knowledge Base article on custom error pages, hence you won't need any programming skills or previous experience.
