If you have checked out loads of Internet sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message from time to time. An error may occur if the server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the web server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages can often be annoying as the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some hosting companies allow you to use your own error pages that will match the layout of your own website and which may have any content which you'd like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty comment. This kind of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

You shall be able to set up custom made error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud website hosting solutions which we offer, so as soon as you log in to your Hepsia CP and visit the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will be displayed, you may choose the kind of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a standard Apache server page or a personalized one. For the latter option, you need to specify the URL to the page, so when you use custom made pages, you must upload the files inside your website hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file positioned inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The exact syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this feature even if you don't have any previous experience.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account from us, you could set custom error pages for each of them easily using our in-house made Hepsia hosting CP. With a few mouse clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you'll be able to modify the default setting from a system page to a personalized one for each of the four error types. All you have to do is provide a link to every single file that you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If required, you'll be able to revert this change whenever you want and in exactly the same way. If you prefer, you could use an .htaccess file as well. It has to be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder linked to the internet site whose error pages you would want to change and the content for this sort of file can be found in our Help article about this matter.
