If you have checked out a lot of websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error could occur if the 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 aren't permitted to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages may sometimes be aggravating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting service providers permit you to apply your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and which can have any content that you want - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny remark. This type of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting

When you obtain a shared web hosting from our company, you'll be able to set custom error pages for your websites quickly and easily, as this feature is a part of all of our plans. As soon as you have created the files and uploaded them to your hosting account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the selected domain or subdomain. Inside the pop-up that will show up, you'll see drop-down options menus for all 4 sorts of errors and for each of them you can select an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a custom page. In case you choose the third option, you should just enter the URL to the file you have uploaded then save the change. One other way to set custom made error pages is to set up an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to add a few lines of program code in it. If you do not have prior experience or if you're simply uncertain how to do this, you could simply copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that topic.
