If you have browsed many websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error can occur when the website hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Getting such messages could sometimes be annoying because the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting service providers allow you to set your own error pages that will match the style of your own website and that may have any content that you would like - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing remark. This sort of function can help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The personalized error pages function is offered with each and every cloud hosting package deal which we offer and you will be able to swap the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for each and every web site hosted in the account independently, so that every group of custom made pages shall have the same style and design as the website it's part of. If necessary, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you can simply copy the needed program code from our Help article about the subject.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

All of our semi-dedicated plans support custom made error pages, so you will be able to employ this feature for each and every domain or subdomain hosted in your account. All it will take to do this is to visit the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, to click on the Edit button associated with the particular domain/subdomain and then to input the link to the custom-made file. You are able to do this independently for each error type. You will be able to switch back to a default error page anytime if needed and the change will take effect right away. Another way to achieve the same result is to set an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder associated with the site which you'd like to modify and to input several lines of program code in it. If you need to try this method, you could copy and paste the needed code from our Knowledge Base article on custom error pages, thus you'll not need any programming skills or previous experience.
