If you have looked at many websites, you've probably come across some error message every now and then. An error can take place when the website hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages can sometimes be aggravating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting service providers allow you to set your own error pages that will match the design of your own site and which may have any content that you would like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny comment. This type of function will help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting
You shall be able to set up personalized error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all cloud web hosting package which we offer, so after you log in to the Hepsia CP and navigate 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 could pick the kind of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a standard Apache web server page or a custom one. For the aforementioned alternative, you must assign the URL to the page, so when you use custom pages, you have to upload the files in your website hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file positioned inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The exact syntax can be found in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this function even if you don't have any previous experience.
