If you have checked out loads of sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error may occur in case the web hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the server (Error 404). Getting this type of messages can sometimes be aggravating because the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting service providers permit you to set your own error pages which will match the style of your own website and that can have any content that you'd like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some funny comment. This type of function will help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to set up custom error pages for any of your sites easily when you use any of our Linux cloud hosting. This can easily be done via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts and when you go there, you could set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account beforehand and input the links to them during the process. This function can be de-activated whenever you want and the options you will be able to choose from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Customized error pages may be set with an .htaccess file too. 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 aren't tech-savvy, you may copy the whole content required for the file from our Help section.

Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can do this separately for each and every error type. You'll be able to switch back to a generic error page anytime if required and the change will take effect instantly. A different way to get the very same result is to place an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder of the web site which you would like to modify and to input several lines of program code inside it.
