If you have looked at a lot of sites, you've probably stumbled upon 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 to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages can often be aggravating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages which will match the style of your own Internet site and which could have any content which you would like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous comment. This type of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to set up personalized error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud web hosting solutions that we provide, so when you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will show up, you could select the sort of error page that should appear - a default one from our system, a standard Apache web server page or a custom one. For the latter alternative, you must assign the URL to the page, so if you use custom pages, you need to upload the files in your hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file placed in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The precise syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this feature even if you don't have any previous experience.
