If you have looked at a lot of Internet sites, you've probably come across some error message now and again. An error could occur if the web server can't 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 aren't permitted to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting this type of messages may sometimes be annoying because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages which will match the style of your own website and which can have any content which you want - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some witty remark. This sort of function will help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting
The custom error pages feature is available with each and every cloud hosting package deal we offer and you will be able to replace all generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall need to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for each site hosted inside the account separately, so that every set of custom pages will have the exact same layout as the site it is part of. When necessary, you may always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you could simply copy the needed program code from our Help article on the subject.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
Incorporating your own pages for any of the 4 error types to any Internet site hosted from a semi-dedicated server account with us will be very basic and will not take more than several clicks. When you upload the files in your account, you could go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there through an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You can select what page should display for each and every error type. Your choices are a default Apache server page or a page from our system, and custom pages. In case you select the abovementioned option, you have to type the link to each and every page in your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page that appears if a user encounters an error can be modified at any time. If you're more experienced, you can use an .htaccess file to be able to set in-house made error pages as well, as opposed to using our integrated generator software instrument, and if you select this option, the file has to be located inside the root directory of a given domain or subdomain.
