If you have browsed lots of websites, you've probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error could take place if the hosting server cannot 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 aren't permitted to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages may often be frustrating since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting service providers permit you to apply your own error pages that will match the layout of your own website and that can have any content which you'd like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous comment. This sort of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting
The personalized error pages feature is available with each cloud hosting package deal we offer and you'll be able to replace all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for each website hosted inside the account individually, so that every set of custom made pages will have the very same layout as the website it is part of. If needed, you could always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you could simply copy the needed code from our Help article about the subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your web sites in a semi-dedicated server account from us, you may set customized error pages for any of them with ease through our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. With only a couple of mouse clicks in the Hosted Domains section, you'll be able to edit the default setting from a system page to a tailor-made one for each of the 4 error types. All you need to do is supply a link to every single file that you have uploaded before that and then save the change. If needed, you shall be able to revert this modification anytime and in exactly the same way. If you would like, you could use an .htaccess file too. It has to be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder associated with the site whose error pages you would like to modify and the content for this type of file can be found in our Help article for this matter.
