If you have looked at lots of sites, you have probably encountered some error message now and again. An error could occur in case the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so that you can see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the web server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages can sometimes be aggravating since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting companies allow you to apply your own error pages that'll match the design of your own site and which can have any content that you want - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty comment. This type of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

You can set up custom made error pages for all of your Internet sites effortlessly when you use any of our Linux cloud hosting packages. This could be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts as soon as you go there, you could set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account before you start and enter the links to them through the process. This function could be de-activated at any time and the options you shall be able to to select from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom error pages may be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you can copy the entire content required for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Incorporating your pages for each of the 4 error types to any Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very easy and won't take more than a couple of mouse clicks. After you upload the files to your account, you can navigate to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You could select what page should display for each error type. Your options are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and custom made pages. Should you select the last option, you have to type in the link to every single page in your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page that will be shown when a user encounters an error can be modified whenever you want. If you are more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file to set in-house made error pages too, as opposed to using our integrated generator software instrument, and should you choose this option, the file has to be positioned inside the root directory of a particular domain or subdomain.
