If you have looked at loads of Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message every now and then. An error can take place when the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in in order to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file that is not on the hosting server (Error 404). Encountering this sort of messages may often be aggravating as the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting providers allow you to set your own error pages that'll match the design of your own Internet site and which could have any content that you want - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some funny remark. This type of feature can help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

You shall have to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a particular domain or subdomain from the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You can do this for each and every Internet site hosted inside the account individually, so that every set of customized pages shall have the exact same style and design as the website it is part of. If necessary, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. An alternate way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you can simply copy the necessary code from our Help article about this.
