Custom Error Pages
Learn more about website error pages, exactly when they appear and why you ought to make use of customized error pages.
If you have checked out a lot of sites, you've probably come across some error message once in a while. An error may take place when the website hosting 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 aren't able to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages may sometimes be irritating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. 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 may have any content that you'd like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion what you can do or even some amusing comment. This type of function will help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Hosting
The personalized error pages function is provided with every hosting
plan we offer and you shall be able to swap all the generic pages with your own with no more than several mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting CP. You'll need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a given domain or subdomain through the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You can do this for each and every Internet site hosted inside the account separately, so that every set of customized pages shall have the exact same layout as the site it's part of. If needed, you may always go back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. An alternate way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have not done this before, you can simply copy the necessary code from our Help article on this subject.
