If you have browsed loads of websites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error can take place if the web hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access a page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages could often be annoying since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some website hosting service providers allow you to set your own error pages that'll match the style of your own Internet site and which may have any content which you'd like - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some amusing remark. This type of function will help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to set up customized error pages for any of your Internet sites without difficulty if you use any of our Linux shared web hosting. This can be done from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts and when you go there, you could set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account before you start and input the links to them through the process. This feature could be de-activated at any time and the options you shall be able to to pick from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom error pages may be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it must include some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you may copy the entire content needed for the file from our Help section.
