If you have browsed many websites, you have probably encountered some error message now and again. An error may take place in case the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the server (Error 404). Receiving such messages can sometimes be annoying since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting companies allow you to set your own error pages that'll match the style of your own site and which can have any content which you'd like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny remark. This sort of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting
You can set up customized error pages for any of your websites effortlessly when you use any of our shared website hosting. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and once you go there, you could set your personalized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account beforehand and enter the links to them through the process. This function can be de-activated at any time and the options you will be able to pick from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom error pages could be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it must incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you may copy the whole content required for the file from our Help section.
