Custom Error Pages
Find out more about web site error pages, exactly when they display and why you need to make use of customized error pages.
If you have looked at many sites, you've probably come across some error message once in a while. An error can take place in case the hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the server (Error 404). Encountering such messages may sometimes be aggravating since the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some web hosting service providers permit you to apply your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own site and which could have any content that you want - details why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some funny comment. This sort of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting
The personalized error pages feature is available with every single website hosting
package we offer and you will be able to swap all generic pages with your own with no more than just a few clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You will have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can easily do this for every single Internet site hosted inside the account separately, so that every group of custom pages will have identical layout as the website it's part of. If needed, you can always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. An alternate way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you have never done this before, you may simply copy the necessary code from our Help article on this subject.

In case you don't want to use this function at some point, you will be able to deactivate it just as easily and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable if your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you can also use an .htaccess file to allow the custom error pages.
