If you have checked out a lot of websites, you have probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error can take place in case the server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages may often be annoying as the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting providers permit you to apply your own error pages which will match the style of your own site and which may have any content that you would like - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous comment. This sort of function shall help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting
The personalized error pages feature is offered with each and every cloud web hosting package which we offer and you'll be able to substitute all the generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for every single website hosted inside the account separately, so that each group of customized pages shall have the exact same style and design as the Internet site it's part of. If necessary, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you can simply copy the needed code from our Help article on the subject.
