If you have checked out many Internet sites, you've probably come across some error message now and again. An error may occur if the server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages could often be annoying since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting service providers permit you to apply your own error pages that will match the design of your own Internet site and which could have any content which you want - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing remark. This sort of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting

The custom made error pages feature is provided with each website hosting package which we offer and you will be able to substitute the generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall have to develop the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can easily do this for every single site hosted inside the account independently, so that every group of custom pages will have the very same design as the site it's part of. If required, you can always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. A different way to set custom error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you could simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article on this subject.
