If you have checked out a lot of websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error could occur in case the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting this type of messages can often be aggravating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting service providers allow you to set your own error pages that will match the design of your own website and which may have any content that you would like - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous comment. This kind of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

You shall be able to set up customized error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud website hosting plans that we offer, so when you log in to your Hepsia CP and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will appear, you could choose the sort of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache web server page or a customized one. For the latter alternative, you have to specify the URL to the page, so when you use custom pages, you have to upload the files inside your web hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file positioned inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The actual syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this feature even if you don't have any previous experience.
