If you have checked out a lot of sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error can take place if the web server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages can sometimes be frustrating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting service providers allow you to apply your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and that can have any content which you want - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some amusing comment. This kind of function shall help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

When you purchase a cloud website hosting plan from us, you will be able to set customized error pages for your websites fast and easy, since this feature is a part of all our solutions. As soon as you've created the files and uploaded them to your web hosting account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and click on the Edit button for the selected domain or subdomain. Inside the pop-up that will be displayed, you'll see drop-down options menus for all 4 types of errors and for each of them you could choose an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a tailor-made page. In case you select the 3rd option, you should simply input the URL to the file which you have uploaded and save the change. A different way to set custom made error pages is to set up an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to include a few lines of code in it. In case you don't have prior experience or if you are simply unsure how to do that, you can just copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that subject.
