If you have checked out a lot of sites, you've probably come across some error message from time to time. An error may occur when the server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages may often be frustrating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting companies allow you to set your own error pages that'll match the style of your own website and that may have any content that you want - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous comment. This sort of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting
The custom made error pages feature is available with every single cloud hosting package deal which we offer and you'll be able to substitute all of the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks from your Hepsia website hosting CP. You shall have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You could do this for each and every Internet site hosted inside the account individually, so that every set of customized pages shall have the same design and style as the website it is part of. If required, you could always go back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. A different way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you may simply copy the required code from our Help article about this.
