If you have browsed loads of websites, you've probably come across some error message now and again. An error can occur if the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that isn't on the web server (Error 404). Getting this type of messages could sometimes be annoying because the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting service providers allow you to apply your own error pages that will match the style of your own site and that could have any content that you want - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to proceed or even some funny remark. Such a function can help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

You will be able to set up custom made error pages for any of your Internet sites effortlessly when you use any of our shared hosting service. This could be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, offered with all accounts and when you go there, you can set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account ahead of time and input the links to them during the process. This feature can be de-activated at any time and the options you'll be able to select from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it must contain some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you could copy the whole content you'll need for the file from our Help section.
