If you have looked at many sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error could take place when the website hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages may sometimes be annoying because the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting providers permit you to set your own error pages which will match the style of your own website and which can have any content that you'd like - information why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing comment. Such a function can help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting

You can set up customized error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all shared web hosting solutions which we provide, so after you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and check out the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will be displayed, you can choose the sort of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache server page or a personalized one. For the latter alternative, you have to specify the URL to the page, so when you use personalized pages, you have to upload the files in your hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file located inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The precise syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
