If you have browsed many sites, you've probably come across some error message from time to time. An error could take place if the web hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages can sometimes be annoying because the pages have nothing 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 design of your own website and that can have any content that you want - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some amusing comment. This type of function can help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error or the reason for it.

The custom error pages function is provided with every single cloud hosting plan we offer and you'll be able to replace all of the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You shall need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP.
