If you have looked at many Internet sites, you have probably come across some error message from time to time. An error can occur when the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this type of messages may sometimes be irritating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some hosting companies allow you to apply your own error pages which will match the layout of your own site and which can have any content that you'd like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous remark. Such a function will help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting

You'll be able to set up personalized error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all shared web hosting package which we offer, so after you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will be displayed, you could select the type of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a standard Apache web server page or a custom one. For the last mentioned alternative, you need to specify the URL to the page, so when you use custom pages, you need to upload the files inside your hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file placed inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The exact syntax can be found in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this feature even if you do not have any previous experience.
