If you have browsed many websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error may take place if the server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the web server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages may often be irritating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting companies permit you to apply your own error pages which will match the style of your own site and which could have any content which you want - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny remark. Such a function can help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to set up customized error pages for each of your Internet sites easily when you use any of our Linux cloud hosting. This could be done from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and when you go there, you could set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account beforehand and input the links to them through the process. This function can be de-activated anytime and the options you'll be able to select from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom made error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you could copy the whole content needed for the file from our Help section.
