If you have checked out a lot of Internet sites, you have probably come across some error message now and again. An error could take place in case the server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the web server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages can sometimes be irritating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting providers permit you to use your own error pages that will match the design of your own Internet site and that could have any content that you want - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty comment. Such a feature will help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting
You shall be able to set up custom made error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all cloud website hosting plans which we offer, so once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll be displayed, you may choose the type of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache web server page or a custom one. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to assign the URL to the page, so when you use custom pages, you should upload the files inside your web hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file placed inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The exact syntax can be found in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All of the Linux semi-dedicated packages which we supply support tailor-made error pages and it shall not take more than a couple of clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to use this feature.

Keep in mind, you must upload them inside your account before that. If you don't need to employ this feature at some point, you can easily disable 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'd prefer, you may also use an .htaccess file to permit the custom error pages. The file needs to include a specific line of code and 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.
