Custom Error Pages
Get familiar with website error pages. Learn when they appear and why you need to set up your individual custom error pages.
If you have checked out a lot of sites, you've probably encountered some error message now and again. An error could occur in case the server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not allowed to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this sort of messages could often be annoying as the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some website hosting providers allow you to use your own error pages that will match the style of your own website and that can have any content which you want - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny remark. This type of feature will help you keep the visitor on the website regardless of the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting
When you acquire a shared hosting plan
from us, you shall be able to set customized error pages for your websites fast and easy, as this function is part of all our solutions. After you've created the files and uploaded them to your web hosting account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and click on the Edit button for the specific domain or subdomain. Inside the pop-up that will be displayed, you'll see drop-down options menus for all four sorts of errors and for each one of them you can pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a custom page. In case you choose the 3rd option, you should only type the URL to the file which you have uploaded and save the change. A different way to set personalized error pages is to set up an .htaccess file inside the domain or subdomain folder and to include a couple of lines of program code in it. If you do not have prior experience or if you are simply unsure how to do that, you may simply copy and paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that matter.

Needless to say, you have to upload them inside your account before that. If you do not need to use this function at some point, you could deactivate it just as easily and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be viewable when your visitors encounter an error. If you'd prefer, you could also use an .htaccess file to activate the custom made error pages.
