If you have checked out a lot of Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error could occur when the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the server (Error 404). Getting this sort of messages can often be irritating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting providers permit you to set your own error pages that will match the style of your own site and which could have any content that you'd like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing remark. This sort of feature will help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error or the reason for it.

The function is supported by all cloud web hosting package that we offer, so as soon as you log in to the Hepsia CP and go to the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will be displayed, you may choose the sort of error page that should appear - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache server page or a custom one. For the latter option, you'll have to assign the URL to the page, so when you use custom made pages, you must upload the files inside your hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file positioned in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The precise syntax can be found in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this function even if you don't have any previous experience.
