If you have checked out lots of sites, you have probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error could take place when the website hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages may often be annoying as the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting companies permit you to set your own error pages which will match the style of your own site and which could have any content that you'd like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty remark. This sort of function can help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting

When you order a cloud web hosting from our company, you shall be able to set custom made error pages for your Internet sites easily, since this function is a part of all our packages. As soon as you've created the files and uploaded them to your website hosting account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and click on the Edit button for the selected domain or subdomain. In the pop-up which will show up, you will see drop-down options menus for all 4 kinds of errors and for each one of them you can select an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a personalized page. In case you select the third option, you should only enter the URL to the file which you have uploaded then save the change. One other way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder and to include a couple of lines of code in it. If you don't have previous experience or if you're simply uncertain how to do that, you may just copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that subject.
