If you have checked out loads of websites, you've probably come across some error message once in a while. An error can take place if the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages could often be irritating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting companies permit you to apply your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own Internet site and that may have any content which you would like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some funny remark. This kind of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Hosting

You'll be able to set up custom error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all hosting package that we offer, so after you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will appear, you can select the type of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a personalized one. For the aforementioned alternative, you need to specify the URL to the page, so if you use custom made pages, you should upload the files in your Internet hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file positioned in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The actual syntax can be found in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this feature even if you do not have any previous experience.
