If you have checked out a lot of Internet sites, you have probably come across some error message now and again. An error can occur in case the server cannot 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 permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting this type of messages may often be aggravating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting providers permit you to use your own error pages that will match the style of your own website and that could have any content which you'd like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty comment. This type of function can help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting

If you get a shared website hosting from our company, you will be able to set custom error pages for your Internet sites easily, because this function is part of all of our solutions. As soon as you have created the files and uploaded them to your website hosting account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and click on the Edit button for the selected domain or subdomain. Inside the pop-up which will be displayed, you will see drop-down options menus for all 4 types of errors and for each of them you could pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a customized page. If you pick the 3rd option, you should simply input the URL to the file that you have uploaded and save the change. A different way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to add a couple of lines of code in it. In case you don't have previous experience or if you are just unsure how to do that, you could simply copy and paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that matter.
