If you have checked out a lot of websites, you have probably come across some error message from time to time. An error can occur when the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering such messages can often be aggravating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting service providers allow you to use your own error pages that will match the style of your own site and which could have any content that you'd like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous comment. This type of feature will help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to set up personalized error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud hosting package which we provide, so when you log in to the Hepsia CP and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will appear, you may choose the type of error page that should appear - a default one from our system, a standard Apache web server page or a customized one. For the latter option, you need to specify the URL to the page, so if you use customized pages, you should upload the files in your web hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file placed inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The precise syntax can be found in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
