If you have checked out a lot of websites, you have probably come across some error message from time to time. An error can take place if the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the server (Error 404). Getting this type of messages can often be irritating since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting service providers allow you to set your own error pages which will match the design of your own site and that may have any content that you'd like - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny comment. This type of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to set up customized error pages for all of your websites with ease if you use any of our Linux cloud hosting. This could be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts and when you go there, you could set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account before you start and input the links to them during the process. This feature can be de-activated anytime and the options you'll be able to choose from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom error pages may be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it must contain some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content necessary for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting which we provide support custom error pages and it shall not take more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to use this function. The option is available in the Hosted Domains section of your CP in which you'll have to input the links to the custom-made files using simple drop-down menus and a time and effort saving interface. Of course, you need to upload them in your account before that. If you don't need to use this feature at some point, you will be able to deactivate it just as quickly and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to enable the custom error pages. The file needs to have a specific line of code plus a link for each and every error type and you can discover an example of the entire content for all four error types in our Help section.
