Custom Error Pages
Find out what a Custom Error Page is, what role does it have and how to set one.
If you have checked out loads of sites, you've probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error could occur when the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the web server (Error 404). Getting this sort of messages could often be irritating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting companies permit you to set your own error pages that'll match the design of your own site and which can have any content that you'd like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some witty remark. This kind of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting
You can set up custom made error pages for all of your websites without difficulty if you use any of our shared hosting. This could be done using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts and when you go there, you could set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account beforehand and input the links to them during the process. This function can be de-activated whenever you want and the options you shall be able to to pick from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Customized error pages can be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you may copy the whole content you'll need for the file from our Help section.
