If you have looked at loads of websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message from time to time. An error can occur if the website hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages could sometimes be aggravating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting companies permit you to apply your own error pages that will match the style 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 handle it or even some witty remark. This kind of function will help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

The personalized error pages feature is offered with each and every cloud website hosting package which we offer and you'll be able to replace all generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You will have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for every web site hosted inside the account separately, so that each set of customized pages shall have the very same layout as the site it's part of. If necessary, you could always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. Another way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you could simply copy the necessary code from our Help article about this.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers support custom made error pages, so you will be able to employ this feature for any domain or subdomain hosted inside your account. All it takes to do that is to navigate to the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, to click on the Edit button linked to the particular domain/subdomain and then to input the link to the custom-made file. You can do this individually for each error type. You'll be able to switch back to a standard error page at any time if needed and the change will take effect at once. A different way to get the same exact result is to place an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder related to the site that you'd like to modify and to type in several lines of program code inside it. If you'd like to try this method, you can copy and paste the necessary code from our Knowledge Base article on custom error pages, thus you will not need any coding skills or prior experience.
