If you have browsed a lot of Internet sites, you've probably encountered some error message now and again. An error may occur if the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so that you can see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Getting such messages could sometimes be aggravating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting providers permit you to set your own error pages which will match the design of your own Internet site and that can have any content that you'd like - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous remark. This type of feature will help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to set up custom made error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud hosting plans which we provide, so once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and check out the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will be displayed, you could pick the sort of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache server page or a personalized one. For the latter option, you must assign the URL to the page, so when you use customized pages, you should upload the files inside your Internet hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file placed inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The precise syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this feature even if you don't have any previous experience.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of the semi-dedicated services which we offer support personalized error pages and it will not take more than a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this feature. The option is available in the Hosted Domains section of your CP where you will have to type in the links to the custom-made files using simple drop-down menus and an easy to work with interface. Of course, you have to upload them inside your account before that. In case you don't need to employ this feature at some point, you can easily deactivate it just as easily and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to permit the custom made error pages. The file should include a specific line of code as well as a link for every single error type and you can discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
