If you have looked at loads of Internet sites, you've probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error may take place when the server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so that you can see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting 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 hosting providers allow you to apply your own error pages which will match the design of your own website and that can have any content which you would like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous remark. Such a feature can help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting

You will be able to set up customized error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all web hosting plans that we provide, so once you log in to your Hepsia CP and go to the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will be displayed, you can pick the kind of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a customized one. For the last mentioned alternative, you will need to specify the URL to the page, so when you use custom made pages, you should upload the files inside your web hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file placed inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The actual syntax can be found in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
