If you have browsed lots of websites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message from time to time. An error can take place when the 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 a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages can sometimes be frustrating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages that will match the style of your own Internet site and that can have any content which you would like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some funny remark. This kind of function can help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to set up custom error pages for all of your Internet sites without difficulty when you use any of our cloud web hosting packages. This could be done from the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts and when you go there, you'll be able to set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account ahead of time and input the links to them through the process. This function may be de-activated anytime and the options you'll be able to select from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache server page. Personalized error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it should contain some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you may copy the whole content necessary for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of our semi-dedicated packages support customized error pages, so you shall be able to use this function for every single domain or subdomain hosted inside your account. All it will take to do this is to visit the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, to click the Edit button linked to the given domain/subdomain and to type in the link to the custom-made file. You are able to do this separately for each and every error type. You'll be able to switch back to a default error page anytime if necessary and the change shall take effect straightaway. Another way to achieve the exact same result is to set an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder related to the web site that you would like to edit and to enter a few lines of code within it. If you want to try this method, you can copy and paste the needed code from our Knowledge Base article on custom error pages, thus you will not need any coding skills or prior experience.
