If you have looked at a lot of sites, you've probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error may occur if the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Getting this sort of messages can sometimes be annoying as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting service providers permit you to use your own error pages that will match the design of your own Internet site and which may have any content which you want - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous comment. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Hosting

You will be able to set up customized error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all hosting plans that we offer, so after you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll show up, you may pick the sort of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache web server page or a personalized one. For the aforementioned alternative, you need to specify the URL to the page, so if you use personalized pages, you have to upload the files inside your Internet hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file positioned in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The correct syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this function even if you don't have any previous experience.
