Custom Error Pages
Get familiar with website error pages. Discover when they show up and why you should set up your own custom error pages.
If you have browsed lots of Internet sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message from time to time. An error may occur if the web server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting such messages may sometimes be aggravating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting companies permit you to apply your own error pages that'll match the style of your own site and which can have any content that you'd like - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some amusing comment. This kind of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting
You'll be able to set up custom error pages for any of your Internet sites with ease if you use any of our Linux shared website hosting packages. This could be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, offered with all accounts and when you go there, you'll be able to set your custom 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 whenever you want and the options you will be able to choose from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Tailor-made error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content required for the file from our Help section.
