If you have looked at a lot of Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error may occur when the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages may often be frustrating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the design of your own Internet site and that can have any content that you would like - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny comment. This sort of function shall help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of 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 package that we offer, so after you log in to the 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 will be displayed, you may choose the sort of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a customized one. For the aforementioned alternative, you must specify the URL to the page, so if you use custom pages, you need to upload the files in your website hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file placed in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The exact syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this feature even if you don't have any previous experience.

In case you don't want to employ this function at some point, you can easily disable it just as fast and choose an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed when your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you could also use an .htaccess file to allow the custom error pages. The file should have a specific line of code and a link for every single error type and you may find an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
