If you have browsed loads of Internet sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message from time to time. An error could take place in case the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the web server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages could sometimes be frustrating because the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting providers permit you to apply your own error pages that'll match the design of your own Internet site and which may have any content that you would like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some funny remark. This kind of feature will help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting
You'll be able to set up custom made error pages for all of your sites easily when you use any of our cloud plans. This could be done through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts and once you go there, you can set your personalized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account beforehand and input the links to them during the process. This function may be de-activated at any time and the options you shall be able to to pick from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it must incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you could copy the whole content necessary for the file from our Help section.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account from us, you may set customized error pages for any of them easily via our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

All you must do is provide a link to every file that you've uploaded before that and then save the change. If required, you'll be able to revert this customization at any time and in exactly the same way. If you would like, you can use an .htaccess file too. It should be created/uploaded within the domain or subdomain folder associated with the internet site whose error pages you would like to change and the content for this kind of file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
