If you have looked at a lot of Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error can take place when the hosting server can't 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 are not permitted to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the server (Error 404). Getting this type of messages could sometimes be annoying as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting service providers allow you to apply your own error pages that will match the layout of your own site and which could have any content which you want - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing remark. This type of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting
The custom made error pages function is provided with each shared web hosting package which we offer and you shall be able to substitute all the generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You will have to produce 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 could do this for each and every website hosted inside the account individually, so that every group of custom made pages will have the same design and style as the Internet site it's part of. If required, you could always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. Another way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in 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 needed code from our Help article about this.
