If you have browsed loads of sites, you've probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error may occur when the website hosting 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 aren't permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages may sometimes be irritating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting companies allow you to set your own error pages that will match the style of your own site and which could have any content which you'd like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some amusing remark. This kind of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to set up customized error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud website hosting plans which we offer, so as soon as you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll show up, you can select the type of error page that should appear - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache server page or a custom one. For the latter option, you will need to specify the URL to the page, so when you use personalized pages, you must upload the files inside your hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file positioned in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The actual syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
