If you have looked at loads of Internet sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error could take place in case the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages can sometimes be irritating because the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some hosting providers permit you to set your own error pages which will match the design of your own website and which may have any content that you would like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some witty remark. This type of function can help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

The personalized error pages feature is available with each and every cloud hosting package deal we offer and you'll be able to substitute all the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You will need to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for every single Internet site hosted inside the account individually, so that each set of personalized pages shall have the exact same design and style as the website it is part of. If required, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. A different way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you could simply copy the needed code from our Help article on this subject.

You can do this individually for each and every error type. You shall be able to switch back to a default error page at any time if required and the change shall take effect at once. A different way to get the exact same result is to put an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder of the site which you want to modify and to type in a few lines of code in it. If you would like to try this method, you may copy and paste the required code from our Knowledge Base article on custom error pages, which means that you won't need any coding skills or prior experience.
