If you have browsed lots of Internet sites, you have probably come across some error message once in a while. An error could take place when the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the web server (Error 404). Getting this sort of messages can often be annoying since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting companies allow you to use your own error pages which will match the layout of your own Internet site and that may have any content that you want - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny remark. This type of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting
When you purchase a cloud package from our company, you will be able to set customized error pages for your websites fast and easy, because this function is a part of all our plans. As soon as you have created the files and uploaded them to your website hosting account, you should 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 will see drop-down options menus for all four sorts of errors and for each of them you may pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a custom page. In case you pick the 3rd option, you should simply enter the URL to the file which you have uploaded then save the change. Another way to set custom made error pages is to set up an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to add a couple of lines of code in it. If you don't have preceding experience or if you are just not sure how to do that, you may just copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that matter.
