If you have checked out loads of Internet sites, you have probably come across some error message from time to time. An error could occur when the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Getting such messages may sometimes be frustrating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages that'll match the design of your own site and that can have any content that you want - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous remark. This sort of function can help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting

The personalized error pages feature is provided with each and every shared web hosting plan we offer and you shall be able to substitute all of the generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You will need to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for each Internet site hosted in the account individually, so that each group of custom pages shall have the exact same style and design as the Internet site it is part of. If necessary, you may always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. A different way to set customized 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 not done this before, you could simply copy the required program code from our Help article on this subject.
