If you have browsed a lot of websites, you have probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error may take place when the website hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages can sometimes be aggravating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting providers permit you to apply your own error pages that'll match the design of your own website and which could have any content that you would like - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some funny comment. This type of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

You can set up customized error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud web hosting plans that we provide, so after you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll be displayed, you could select the kind of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a personalized one. For the latter option, you have to specify the URL to the page, so when you use customized pages, you have to upload the files inside your Internet hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file positioned in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The precise syntax can be found in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
