If you have browsed loads of sites, you have probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error could take place if the web hosting 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 are not allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages could often be frustrating because the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting companies permit you to apply your own error pages that'll match the style of your own site and that could have any content which you want - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous comment. This type of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to set up custom error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud hosting solutions which we offer, so once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll appear, you may pick the kind of error page that should appear - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a customized one. For the latter option, you must specify the URL to the page, so when you use customized pages, you need to upload the files in your website hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file located in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The actual syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this feature even if you do not have any previous experience.
