If you have checked out lots of sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message every now and then. An error could take place if the web hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages could sometimes be frustrating as the pages have nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages which will match the style of your own Internet site and that could have any content which you'd like - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some witty comment. This kind of function will help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

You shall be able to set up custom error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all shared hosting package that we provide, so once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and check out the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll appear, you may select the type of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a standard Apache web server page or a custom one. For the aforementioned option, you must specify the URL to the page, so if you use personalized pages, you have to upload the files inside your hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file placed 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 feature even if you don't have any previous experience.
