If you have checked out many sites, you have probably encountered some error message now and again. An error can occur when the server can't 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 aren't able to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages may sometimes be aggravating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting companies allow you to set your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and that can have any content that you want - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny remark. This type of function shall help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

When you purchase a cloud web hosting plan from our company, you'll be able to set customized error pages for your websites easily and quickly, because this function is part of all our plans. As soon as you've created the files and uploaded them to your web hosting account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and click on the Edit button for the specific domain or subdomain. Inside the pop-up which will show up, you shall see drop-down menus for all four kinds of errors and for each of them you may select an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a customized page. If you select the 3rd option, you should just enter the URL to the file you have uploaded then save the change. A different way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to include a couple of lines of code in it. In case you don't have prior experience or if you're just not sure how to do that, you could simply copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that subject.
