If you have looked at lots of Internet sites, you've probably come across some error message once in a while. An error can take place when the hosting 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 are not allowed to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages can sometimes be aggravating since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting companies allow you to use your own error pages which will match the design of your own Internet site and which could have any content that you want - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny comment. Such a feature shall 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 will be able to set up custom made error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud website hosting solutions that we provide, so once you log in to your Hepsia CP and go to the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will appear, you may choose the kind of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache server page or a personalized one. For the latter option, you need to assign the URL to the page, so when you use custom pages, you must upload the files inside your web hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file located inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The precise syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this feature even if you don't have any previous experience.
