If you have browsed lots of sites, you have probably come across some error message from time to time. An error may occur if the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering such messages may often be aggravating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting providers allow you to apply your own error pages that will match the layout of your own site and which may have any content that you want - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some witty remark. Such a feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

You shall be able to set up custom error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all cloud web hosting plans that we provide, so when you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and visit 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 could select the type of error page that should appear - a default one from our system, a standard Apache server page or a custom one. For the aforementioned alternative, you'll have to specify the URL to the page, so when you use personalized pages, you need to upload the files in your website hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file located in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The precise syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this function even if you don't have any previous experience.
