If you have checked out lots of Internet sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error may occur when the 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 are not able to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the web server (Error 404). Encountering such messages can sometimes be frustrating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting service providers permit you to set your own error pages that'll match the design of your own site and that can have any content that you'd like - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous comment. This kind of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

When you purchase a cloud plan from our company, you will be able to set personalized error pages for your sites quickly and easily, as this function is a part of all of our solutions. The moment you have created the files and uploaded them to your website hosting account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and click on the Edit button for the selected domain or subdomain. Inside the pop-up that will be displayed, you will see drop-down menus for all 4 sorts of errors and for each of them you could choose an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a customized page. If you choose the 3rd option, you should simply enter the URL to the file that you've uploaded and save the change. One other way to set custom made error pages is to set up an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to include a couple of lines of program code in it. If you do not have previous experience or if you're simply uncertain how to do this, you could simply copy and paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that subject.
