If you have browsed loads of websites, you've probably come across some error message now and again. An error could take place in case the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages can often be aggravating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to apply your own error pages that will match the layout of your own site and which could have any content which you want - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous comment. Such a feature will help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The personalized error pages function is provided with each and every cloud hosting package which we offer and you'll be able to swap all the generic pages with your own with no more than several clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You'll have to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for each site hosted in the account individually, so that every group of custom made pages shall have identical design and style as the website it's part of. If needed, you could always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. Another way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you can simply copy the needed code from our Help article on the subject.
