Custom Error Pages
Get familiar with website error pages. Discover when they show up and why you should make your own custom error pages.
If you have looked at many Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message from time to time. An error could occur in case the hosting server can't 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 permitted to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving such messages could often be annoying as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting providers allow you to set your own error pages which will match the style of your own site and which could have any content that you'd like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some witty remark. This sort of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting
You can set up custom made error pages for all of your websites easily when you use any of our Linux web hosting. This can easily be done using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts as soon as you go there, you'll be able to set your custom pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account beforehand and enter the links to them during the process. This feature can be de-activated whenever you want and the options you'll be able to select from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache server page. Personalized error pages can be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it must incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content necessary for the file from our Help section.
