If you have browsed a lot of websites, you have probably come across some error message from time to time. An error could occur in case the server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages can sometimes be irritating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and which may have any content that you'd like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing comment. Such a feature will help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

The customized error pages feature is available with every cloud web hosting package that we offer and you'll be able to substitute the generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks in your Hepsia website hosting CP. You will need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for each Internet site hosted in the account individually, so that each group of customized pages shall have the same design and style as the website it is part of. If necessary, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. A different way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you can simply copy the necessary code from our Help article on the subject.
