If you have checked out a lot of websites, you've probably come across some error message every now and then. An error may occur if the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to 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 which isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages could often be frustrating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting companies allow you to set your own error pages that will match the style of your own site and which may have any content that you would like - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny comment. 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 Hosting

You can set up custom error pages for any of your websites with ease when you use any of our cloud hosting. This can easily be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and when you go there, you could set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account in advance and enter the links to them during the process. This function could be de-activated at any time and the options you will be able to choose from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Personalized error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it should contain some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content needed for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the semi-dedicated hosting which we offer support tailor-made error pages and it will not take more than a few clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option is available in the Hosted Domains section of your Control Panel in which you will need to input the links to the custom-made files using very simple drop-down menus and an easy to use interface. Keep in mind, you need to upload them inside your account before that. In case you do not need to employ this function at some point, you will be able to disable it just as easily and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd like to, you could also use an .htaccess file to permit the custom error pages. The file needs to contain a specific line of code and a link for each and every error type and you can discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
