If you have looked at lots of Internet sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message every now and then. An error could occur if the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so that you can see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this kind of messages may often be frustrating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting companies allow you to use your own error pages which will match the style of your own site and that could have any content which you would like - info why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous remark. This type of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

The customized error pages function is available with every shared hosting package deal we offer and you'll be able to replace the generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia hosting CP. You will need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You could do this for each and every Internet site hosted inside the account separately, so that each set of custom made pages shall have the same design and style as the site it is part of. If required, you could always return back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. An alternate way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you may simply copy the needed code from our Help article on this subject.
