If you have looked at loads of Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error can take place when the website hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting this type of messages may often be frustrating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages that will match the style of your own site and that may have any content that you'd like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing comment. Such a function shall help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The personalized error pages function is provided with each cloud hosting plan that we offer and you'll be able to substitute all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of clicks in your Hepsia website hosting CP. You'll need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can easily do this for every web site hosted in the account separately, so that each group of personalized pages will have identical style and design as the Internet site it's part of. When necessary, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you can simply copy the needed code from our Help article on this subject.

You can do this independently for each and every error type. You will be able to switch back to a default error page at any time if needed and the change will take effect immediately. An alternative way to get the same exact result is to put an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder of the website that you want to modify and to type in several lines of code within it. If you want to try this method, you may copy and paste the required code from our Knowledge Base article on custom error pages, hence you'll not need any programming skills or prior experience.
