If you have looked at a lot of sites, you've probably encountered some error message now and again. An error may occur in case the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the web server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages could often be frustrating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting providers allow you to apply your own error pages that will match the design of your own site and that could have any content that you'd like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous comment. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

You can set up custom error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud web hosting solutions that we provide, so as soon as you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and check out the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll be displayed, you could select the type of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache web server page or a personalized one. For the last mentioned alternative, you must specify the URL to the page, so when you use customized pages, you must upload the files in your Internet hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file positioned inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The precise syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this feature even if you don't have any previous experience.
