If you have browsed lots of websites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error can occur in case the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages could sometimes be irritating since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to apply your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own website and that may have any content which you would like - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny remark. Such a feature will help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Hosting
You'll be able to set up customized error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all hosting plans that we provide, so when you log in to the Hepsia CP and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll show up, you could pick the sort of error page that should appear - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a personalized one. For the last mentioned alternative, you'll have to specify the URL to the page, so if you use customized pages, you must upload the files inside your hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file located inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The exact syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this function even if you don't have any previous experience.
