If you have looked at a lot of Internet sites, you've probably come across some error message now and again. An error may occur if the web hosting server can't 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 a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this type of messages can sometimes be annoying as the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages which will match the layout of your own website and that can have any content which you would like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some witty remark. This sort of function can help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting

You shall be able to set up personalized error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all website hosting solutions that we offer, so as soon as you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will be displayed, you can pick the kind of error page that should appear - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache server page or a personalized one. For the latter alternative, you must specify the URL to the page, so when you use customized pages, you need to upload the files in your Internet hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file positioned in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The exact syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this feature even if you do not have any previous experience.
