If you have browsed many sites, you've probably come across some error message from time to time. An error can occur in case the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages can sometimes be frustrating since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting service providers allow you to use your own error pages that'll match the style of your own website and which can have any content that you would like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny comment. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Website Hosting

If you acquire a Linux cloud website hosting from our company, you'll be able to set personalized error pages for your websites quickly and easily, as this feature is a part of all of our plans. 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 specific domain or subdomain. In the pop-up which will show up, you'll see drop-down menus for all 4 sorts of errors and for each one of them you could select an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a customized page. Should you pick the third option, you should only type the URL to the file which you have uploaded then save the change. Another way to set personalized error pages is to set up an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder and to add a few lines of code in it. If you do not have previous experience or if you are simply unsure how to do this, you can simply copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that matter.
