If you have looked at a lot of sites, you've probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error may take place when the server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages can often be irritating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages which will match the layout of your own website and that can have any content which you'd like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to handle it or even some funny remark. This kind of function will help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Hosting

The customized error pages function is offered with each hosting package deal which we offer and you'll be able to replace all generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks from your Hepsia website hosting CP. You will have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for each and every Internet site hosted in the account individually, so that each group of personalized pages will have the exact same design and style as the Internet site it is part of. If required, you could always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. An alternate way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you may simply copy the needed program code from our Help article on this subject.

A different way to get the same exact result is to put an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder related to the site that you want to change and to input a couple of lines of code in it. If you need to try this method, you could copy and paste the necessary code from our Knowledge Base article on custom error pages, therefore you shall not need any programming skills or previous experience.
