If you have browsed lots of websites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message from time to time. An error could occur when the web hosting server can't 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 aren't able to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages can sometimes be irritating since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting providers allow you to apply your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own website and which may have any content which you want - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing remark. This type of function shall help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

When you get a Linux cloud hosting from us, you'll be able to set personalized error pages for your Internet sites quickly and easily, since this function is a part of all of our solutions. The moment you have created the files and uploaded them to your website hosting account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the specific domain or subdomain. Inside the pop-up which will show up, you shall see drop-down options menus for all 4 kinds of errors and for each of them you could select an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a personalized page. If you pick the 3rd option, you should only enter the URL to the file that you have uploaded and save the change. A different way to set customized error pages is to set up an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder and to add a few lines of program code in it. If you don't have prior experience or if you are just not sure how to do that, you can just copy and paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that matter.

If you'd like to, you could also use an .htaccess file to permit the custom error pages.
