If you have checked out many Internet sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error could take place when the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the server (Error 404). Encountering such messages could often be annoying since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some hosting companies permit you to set your own error pages that will match the layout of your own site and which can have any content which you would like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous comment. Such a function can help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The custom error pages feature is offered with every single cloud hosting package deal we offer and you will be able to replace all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You will have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can easily do this for each and every website hosted inside the account separately, so that each set of custom made pages shall have the same style and design as the website it is part of. If required, you may always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. An alternate way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you could simply copy the required program code from our Help article on the subject.
