If you have checked out a lot of sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message from time to time. An error can occur when the web hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages can often be irritating because the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting providers allow you to set your own error pages that will match the design of your own Internet site and which may have any content that you would like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing comment. Such a feature will help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

You can set up customized error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all cloud web hosting plans that we offer, so when you log in to your Hepsia CP and go to the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will be displayed, you may pick the type of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a standard Apache server page or a custom one. For the aforementioned alternative, you need to specify the URL to the page, so if you use custom made pages, you must upload the files in your web hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file positioned in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The correct syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
