If you have looked at many sites, you have probably come across some error message every now and then. An error can occur if the server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the web server (Error 404).

That’s why some web hosting companies allow you to use your own error pages that will match the design of your own website and that may have any content that you'd like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty remark. This sort of function shall help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

The customized error pages function is offered with every cloud website hosting package we offer and you will be able to swap all generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for every web site hosted in the account separately, so that every set of custom pages will have the very same layout as the Internet site it's part of. If required, you may always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. Another way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you could simply copy the required code from our Help article about the subject.
