If you have checked out many websites, you've probably come across some error message once in a while. An error can take place if the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering such messages may often be irritating since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting service providers permit you to use your own error pages which will match the design of your own Internet site and that may have any content which you'd like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny comment. Such a feature will help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Hosting

If you order a hosting from us, you will be able to set custom made error pages for your websites quickly and easily, because this function is a part of all of our plans. Once you've created the files and uploaded them to your hosting account, you should check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the selected domain or subdomain. In the pop-up that will be displayed, you'll see drop-down options menus for all four sorts of errors and for each one of them you may pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a tailor-made page. In case you choose the 3rd option, you should only input the URL to the file that you've uploaded and save the change. Another way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder and to include a couple of lines of code in it. In case you don't have preceding experience or if you're just not sure how to do this, you can simply copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that topic.
