If you have browsed lots of Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error can take place when the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the server (Error 404). Encountering this type of messages could often be aggravating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages that will match the style of your own site and which can have any content that you would like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous comment. Such a function can help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting
You will be able to set up custom error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all web hosting solutions which we provide, so as soon as you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will show up, you can choose the type of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a standard Apache server page or a custom one. For the aforementioned option, you have to assign the URL to the page, so if you use custom pages, you have to 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 seen in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this function even if you don't have any previous experience.
