If you have browsed lots of Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error may occur in case the web 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 able to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting this type of messages may sometimes be aggravating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting service providers allow you to set your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own site and which can have any content that you want - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny remark. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

The custom error pages feature is available with every cloud web hosting plan we offer and you will be able to substitute all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting CP. You will need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can easily do this for each site hosted inside the account individually, so that every group of custom made pages will have the very same design as the site it is part of. If needed, you could always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. An alternate way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you could simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article about the subject.
