If you have browsed lots of Internet sites, you've probably encountered some error message once in a while. An error may occur when the web hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't allowed to access some webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the hosting server (Error 404). Getting this kind of messages could sometimes be irritating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting service providers permit you to apply your own error pages that will match the style of your own site and that could have any content which you would like - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous comment. This sort of function will help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Hosting
You'll be able to set up custom made error pages for any of your Internet sites with ease if you use any of our hosting. This can be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and once you go there, you can set your personalized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You have to upload the files to your account before you start and enter the links to them through the process. This function may be de-activated anytime and the options you will be able to select from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Tailor-made error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it must include some system code and links to the pages. If you aren't tech-savvy, you may copy the whole content needed for the file from our Help section.
