If you have checked out many sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message every now and then. An error could take place if the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the server (Error 404). Getting this type of messages may often be aggravating since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting service providers permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own website and which may have any content which you want - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny remark. This sort of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting

The personalized error pages function is available with each website hosting plan which we offer and you will be able to replace the generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You will need to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for each and every web site hosted inside the account separately, so that every group of custom made pages shall have the very same layout as the Internet site it's part of. If necessary, you can always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you can simply copy the needed code from our Help article about this.
