If you have checked out a lot of sites, you have probably come across some error message once in a while. An error can occur when the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the server (Error 404). Getting this type of messages could sometimes be aggravating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting service providers permit you to set your own error pages that'll match the design of your own site and that could have any content that you want - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous comment. This type of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

You can set up custom made error pages for any of your sites effortlessly if you use any of our Linux cloud hosting. This can be done from the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and when you go there, you can set your personalized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account beforehand and enter the links to them during the process. This feature could be de-activated whenever you want and the options you'll be able to select from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content necessary for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to set tailor-made error pages for each of them easily using our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With several mouse clicks inside the Hosted Domains section, you could modify the default setting from a system page to a customized one for each of the 4 error types. All you have to do is supply a link to each file which you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you'll be able to revert this modification at any time and in exactly the same way. If you prefer, you may use an .htaccess file too. It must be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder related to the website whose error pages you intend to alter and the content for such a file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
