If you have looked at lots of Internet sites, you've probably come across some error message now and again. An error may take place in case the 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 are not allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the server (Error 404). Getting this type of messages may sometimes be aggravating as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting providers permit you to set your own error pages which will match the design of your own website and that may have any content that you would like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny remark. This sort of function can help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting
You'll be able to set up custom made error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all shared hosting package that we provide, so when you log in to the Hepsia CP and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will be displayed, you can select the kind of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a typical Apache server page or a personalized one. For the aforementioned alternative, you need to specify the URL to the page, so if you use customized pages, you need to upload the files in your website hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file placed in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The correct syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
