If you have browsed lots of websites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message every now and then. An error can occur when the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages could sometimes be annoying because the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some hosting providers permit you to use your own error pages which will match the design of your own site and which could have any content that you'd like - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some amusing remark. Such a 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 can set up personalized error pages for all of your Internet sites effortlessly when you use any of our website hosting. This can easily be done using the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts as soon as you go there, you can set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account before you start and input the links to them through the process. This function may be de-activated whenever you want and the options you will be able to pick from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should contain some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you can copy the whole content needed for the file from our Help section.

Needless to say, you must upload them to your account before that. If you don't need to use this function at some point, you will be able to disable it just as quickly and select an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be shown whenever your visitors encounter an error. If you prefer, you could also use an .htaccess file to activate the personalized error pages. The file should have a specific line of code and a link for each error type and you may discover an example of the whole content for all four error types in our Help section.
