If you have looked at many sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error can take place in case the server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Getting this type of messages can often be annoying as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the design of your own Internet site and which could have any content that you would like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some amusing comment. This type of function can help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting
When you buy a Linux cloud hosting from us, you will be able to set customized error pages for your Internet sites quickly and easily, since this feature is part of all of our solutions. The moment you've created the files and uploaded them to your website hosting account, you should check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the particular domain or subdomain. In the pop-up which will show up, you will see drop-down menus for all four sorts of errors and for each of them you could select an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a custom page. In case you select the third option, you should simply type the URL to the file which you have uploaded then save the change. A different way to set custom error pages is to set up an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to include a couple of lines of program code in it. If you do not have prior experience or if you're simply not sure how to do this, you may simply copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that topic.
