If you have checked out many sites, you've probably come across some error message once in a while. An error could occur when the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the web server (Error 404). Encountering this type of messages may sometimes be annoying as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting providers permit you to apply your own error pages that will match the design of your own site and which can have any content that you'd like - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some amusing comment. This type of function can help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting

If you get a Linux website hosting from us, you will be able to set custom made error pages for your Internet sites easily and quickly, because this function is part of all our packages. Once you've created the files and uploaded them to your hosting account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the specific domain or subdomain. In the pop-up that will be displayed, you will see drop-down menus for all four sorts of errors and for each one of them you could select an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a tailor-made page. Should you choose the 3rd option, you should simply input the URL to the file that you have uploaded and save the change. One other way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder and to add a couple of lines of code in it. In case you don't have prior experience or if you're just uncertain how to do this, you can simply copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that matter.
