If you have looked at many Internet sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error can occur when the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so that you can 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 isn't on the web server (Error 404). Getting this type of messages could often be aggravating since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting providers permit you to use your own error pages that will match the layout of your own Internet site and that can have any content that you want - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous remark. This type of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting
You can set up personalized error pages for any of your websites easily when you use any of our shared web hosting plans. This can be done using the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts and once you go there, you can set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account in advance and input the links to them during the process. This function may be de-activated whenever you want and the options you'll be able to select from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache server page. Personalized error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it must include some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you can copy the whole content required for the file from our Help section.
