If you have browsed many sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error may take place in case the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages could often be annoying as the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting providers permit you to use your own error pages which will match the layout of your own Internet site and that may have any content that you want - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny comment. This type of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to set up custom made error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all cloud web hosting solutions which we offer, so once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and check out the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will be displayed, you can choose the type of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache server page or a custom one. For the latter alternative, you need to specify the URL to the page, so when you use custom pages, you need to upload the files in your hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file located in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The precise syntax can be found in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Adding your pages for each of the four error types to any website hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very simple and won't take more than a few mouse clicks. Once you upload the files inside your account, you could check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit any of the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down navigation. You may choose what page should appear for every single error type. Your options are a standard Apache web server page or a page from our system, and tailor-made pages. If you select the abovementioned option, you will need to type in the link to every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the kind of page which will appear if a user encounters an error can be modified whenever you want. If you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file so as to set custom error pages as well, as an alternative to using our integrated generator instrument, and in case you select this option, the file must be positioned inside the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
