If you have looked at a lot of Internet sites, you've probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error could take place in case the website hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages could often be annoying as the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting service providers permit you to apply your own error pages that will match the layout of your own website and that can have any content which you'd like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing comment. This sort of feature will help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting

The custom made error pages feature is offered with every single website hosting package which we offer and you shall be able to substitute the generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting CP. You shall need to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for each and every site hosted inside the account individually, so that each set of custom pages will have the exact same design and style as the website it's part of. If necessary, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. Another way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you could simply copy the required code from our Help article about the subject.
