If you have browsed many websites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error could occur when the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Getting this sort of messages could sometimes be irritating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting providers permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own site and which may have any content that you'd like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some funny comment. This sort of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Hosting

The custom made error pages function is available with every hosting package which we offer and you shall be able to replace all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a couple of clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You'll need to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for every single site hosted in the account individually, so that each group of custom pages shall have the very same layout as the website it is part of. If necessary, you could always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set customized 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 may simply copy the needed code from our Help article about the subject.
