If you have browsed loads of sites, you've probably encountered some error message from time to time. An error could take place if the server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so that you can see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the server (Error 404). Getting such messages could sometimes be annoying since the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting companies allow you to apply your own error pages which will match the layout of your own Internet site and that could have any content which you want - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous remark. This sort of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting

You can set up custom made error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all website hosting plans that we provide, so after you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will be displayed, you can choose the sort of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a typical Apache server page or a personalized one. For the latter option, you need to specify the URL to the page, so if you use custom made pages, you must upload the files inside your web hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file placed in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The exact syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
