If you have browsed lots of websites, you have probably come across some error message now and again. An error can occur when the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages can sometimes be annoying as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages which will match the design of your own site and that may have any content which you would like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some witty comment. Such a function shall help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting
You will be able to set up custom error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all website hosting solutions that we offer, so once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will show up, you can select the sort of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a custom one. For the aforementioned alternative, you'll have to specify the URL to the page, so if you use custom made pages, you must upload the files in your hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file positioned in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The exact syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this feature even if you do not have any previous experience.
