If you have checked out a lot of Internet sites, you've probably come across some error message once in a while. An error could take place in case the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that is not on the web server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages could often be irritating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some hosting companies permit you to use your own error pages that'll match the layout of your own Internet site and that could have any content that you'd like - details why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous remark. This sort of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Website Hosting
When you order a shared website hosting plan from us, you'll be able to set personalized error pages for your Internet sites easily, as this feature is part of all of our packages. The moment you've created the files and uploaded them to your website hosting account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia CP and click on the Edit button for the selected domain or subdomain. In the pop-up that will be displayed, you will see drop-down menus for all 4 sorts of errors and for each of them you can select an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a customized page. If you choose the third option, you should only enter the URL to the file that you've uploaded and save the change. A different way to set customized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to include a few lines of code in it. In case you don't have previous experience or if you are just not sure how to do this, you could simply copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that topic.
