If you have looked at many sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error can take place if the server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving such messages may often be irritating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some hosting companies allow you to apply your own error pages that will match the style of your own site and which may have any content that you'd like - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing remark. This kind of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

If you get a cloud website hosting plan from us, you will be able to set customized error pages for your Internet sites fast and easy, as this feature is part of all of our solutions. Once you have created the files and uploaded them to your web hosting account, you should check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the selected domain or subdomain. In the pop-up which will be displayed, you shall see drop-down options menus for all 4 kinds of errors and for each of them you may pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a tailor-made page. Should you pick the 3rd option, you should just type the URL to the file which you have uploaded and save the change. One other way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to include several lines of program code in it. In case you don't have previous experience or if you are simply not sure how to do this, you may just copy and paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that subject.
