Custom Error Pages
Find out more about website error pages, exactly when they appear and why you need to utilize customized error pages.
If you have looked at a lot of sites, you've probably encountered some error message from time to time. An error could occur in case the server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages may often be irritating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting service providers permit you to set your own error pages which will match the design of your own Internet site and that can have any content which you would like - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny remark. This sort of function shall help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting
The custom error pages feature is available with each and every shared website hosting
plan we offer and you'll be able to substitute all the generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for each website hosted inside the account separately, so that each group of custom made pages shall have the exact same layout as the site it's part of. If necessary, you may always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you could simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article on this subject.
