If you have checked out a lot of websites, you have probably come across some error message from time to time. An error may take place when the server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages could often be annoying since the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting companies allow you to apply your own error pages that will match the design of your own site and that can have any content that you would like - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty remark. This sort of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting
You can set up custom made error pages for all of your sites with ease if you use any of our Linux cloud plans
. This can easily be done using the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and when you go there, you'll be able to set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account ahead of time and enter the links to them through the process. This function can be de-activated whenever you want and the options you will be able to select from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache server page. Tailor-made error pages may be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it should incorporate 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 Servers
When you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, you'll be able to set custom error pages for each of them with ease through our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With a couple of clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you can edit the default setting from a system page to a personalized one for each of the 4 error types. All you have to do is supply a link to each file that you've uploaded before that and then save the change. If required, you'll be able to revert this modification at any time and in exactly the same way. If you would like, you may use an .htaccess file too. It must be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder linked to the site whose error pages you would want to alter and the content for this type of file can be found in our Help article about this matter.
