Custom Error Pages
Find out what a Custom Error Page is, what function does it serve and ways to create one.
If you have looked at loads of websites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error may take place if the website hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so that you can see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages could sometimes be annoying as the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting service providers allow you to set your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own website and which may have any content which you'd like - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some witty remark. This kind of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting
You'll be able to set up custom error pages for any of your Internet sites easily when you use any of our web hosting. This can easily be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts as soon as you go there, you could set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account in advance and enter the links to them during the process. This function could be de-activated at any time and the options you will be able to pick from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache server page. Personalized error pages could be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it must contain some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you could copy the whole content needed for the file from our Help section.
