If you have checked out many Internet sites, you've probably encountered some error message from time to time. An error can occur if the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages can sometimes be irritating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting providers permit you to set your own error pages that will match the layout of your own website and that may have any content that you want - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous comment. This kind of function shall help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to set up custom error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all cloud website hosting solutions that we offer, so when you log in to your Hepsia CP and visit the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will appear, you can pick the type of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a custom one. For the latter alternative, you'll have to specify the URL to the page, so if you use custom made pages, you have to upload the files in your Internet hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file located in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The precise syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this feature even if you don't have any previous experience.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Including your own pages for any of the four error types to any web site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very easy and shall not take more than a couple of mouse clicks. After you upload the files to your account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and edit the domains and subdomains listed there using an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You could select what page should appear for each and every error type. The options are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and personalized pages. If you pick the aforementioned option, you need to input the link to every page in your account, then save the change. The link or the type of page which appears in case a user encounters an error can be changed anytime. In case you are more experienced, you could use an .htaccess file in order to set in-house made error pages too, as opposed to using our integrated generator software instrument, and in case you select this option, the file needs to be located in the root directory of a specific domain or subdomain.
