If you have browsed many Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message from time to time. An error may occur if the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving such messages could often be irritating because the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting companies allow you to apply your own error pages which will match the design of your own site and that may have any content which you'd like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous comment. Such a feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

When you get a cloud hosting from our company, you shall be able to set custom made error pages for your sites easily, since this feature is part of all our packages. Once you've created the files and uploaded them to your website hosting account, you should check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the particular domain or subdomain. Inside the pop-up that will show up, you'll see drop-down options menus for all 4 types of errors and for each of them you may select an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a personalized page. Should you select the 3rd option, you should just input the URL to the file that you've uploaded and save the change. A different way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to include a couple of lines of code in it. If you do not have prior experience or if you are just not sure how to do that, you can simply copy and paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that matter.
