If you have checked out many websites, you have probably come across some error message now and again. An error could take place in case the web server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so that you can see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Getting this sort of messages may often be annoying because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting service providers allow you to use your own error pages that'll match the design of your own website and that may have any content which you'd like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing comment. This sort of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting

You can set up custom made error pages for all of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all shared web hosting solutions which we provide, so once you log in to your Hepsia CP and visit the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will show up, you may pick the kind of error page that should appear - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a customized one. For the latter option, you will need to assign the URL to the page, so when you use personalized pages, you must upload the files inside your website hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file positioned in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The correct syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this feature even if you don't have any previous experience.
