If you have checked out loads of sites, you've probably come across some error message from time to time. An error may occur in case the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so that you can see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages can sometimes be irritating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some hosting providers permit you to set your own error pages that'll match the design of your own site and which can have any content that you'd like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some witty comment. This sort of feature will help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting
The custom error pages feature is offered with every single website hosting package deal we offer and you'll be able to substitute all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall have to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for each site hosted inside the account separately, so that every set of personalized pages shall have the very same design as the website it's part of. If needed, you may always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. Another way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you could simply copy the required code from our Help article about the subject.

After you upload the files inside your account, you could check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and edit each of the domains and subdomains listed there via an intuitive interface with drop-down menus. You can pick what page should show up for every error type. The choices are a default Apache web server page or a page from our system, and custom made pages. If you pick the last option, you need to enter the link to each and every page inside your account, then save the change. The link or the sort of page that appears in case a user encounters an error can be modified at any time.
