Custom Error Pages
Find out what a Custom Error Page is, what role does it have and how to create one.
If you have looked at many sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error can take place if the hosting 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 allowed to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting such messages may sometimes be annoying as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting companies allow you to set your own error pages that will match the layout of your own Internet site and which can have any content which you want - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some funny remark. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting
You can set up custom made error pages for each of your sites without difficulty if you use any of our Linux cloud web hosting
. This can easily be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and when you go there, you can set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account before you start and input the links to them through the process. This function may be de-activated at any time and the options you'll be able to select from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache web 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 must include some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you could copy the whole content required for the file from our Help section.
