Custom Error Pages
Take a plunge into website error pages. Learn when they appear and why you need to set up your own custom error pages.
If you have checked out loads of Internet sites, you've probably encountered some error message now and again. An error may take place when the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so that you can see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages could often be annoying because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting service providers allow you to set your own error pages which will match the design of your own site and that could have any content which you'd like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing remark. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Hosting
You can set up customized error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud hosting
plans which we provide, so once you log in to your Hepsia CP and check out the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will show up, you can choose the sort of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a typical Apache server page or a personalized one. For the last mentioned option, you need to assign the URL to the page, so if you use customized pages, you have to upload the files inside your web hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file located inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The correct syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this function even if you don't have any previous experience.
