If you have looked at many Internet sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error may take place in case the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this type of messages could sometimes be irritating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting service providers allow you to set your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and which can have any content that you want - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous comment. This type of function shall help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

If you obtain a Linux cloud web hosting from us, you'll be able to set custom error pages for your sites easily, since this feature is a part of all of our packages. As soon as you have created the files and uploaded them to your web hosting account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the particular domain or subdomain. In the pop-up which will appear, you'll see drop-down menus for all 4 types of errors and for each one of them you can pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a custom made page. If you select the 3rd option, you should simply type the URL to the file that you've uploaded then save the change. One other way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to add a couple of lines of code in it. If you don't have prior experience or if you're simply unsure how to do this, you may simply copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that subject.
