If you have looked at loads of websites, you have probably come across some error message once in a while. An error can occur if the website hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Receiving such messages may often be irritating since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting companies allow you to use your own error pages that will match the layout of your own website and that can have any content that you'd like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some amusing remark. This kind of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error and the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting

You can set up custom made error pages for all of your sites easily if you use any of our Linux shared website hosting packages. This could be done via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts and once you go there, you'll be able to set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account beforehand and input the links to them through the process. This function could be de-activated anytime and the options you shall be able to to select from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache server page. Custom error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it must include some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you can copy the entire content needed for the file from our Help section.
