If a certain page on a website does not load for some reason or if a link is not functioning, the website visitor will see an error page with some generic message. The page shall have nothing in common with the rest of the Internet site, which may make the visitor leave your Internet site. A possible solution in such a case is a function made available from some hosting providers - the option to set your own customized error pages that will have the exact same layout as your website and that may contain any text or images that you'd like dependent upon the specific error. There are four popular errors which can occur and they involve these particular so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your Internet browser sends a bad request to the hosting server and it cannot be processed; 401, if you're supposed to log in to see a webpage, but you haven't done this yet; 403, if you do not have an authorization to see a certain page; and 404, when a link that you have clicked leads to a file which doesn't exist. In each of these scenarios, site visitors will be able to see your custom made content as opposed to a generic error page.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

You'll be able to set up custom made error pages for all of your websites effortlessly if you use any of our shared hosting. This can easily be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts as soon as you go there, you can set your custom made pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account ahead of time and input the links to them during the process. This feature may be de-activated at any time and the options you will be able to pick from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom error pages could be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should contain some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you may copy the whole content necessary for the file from our Help section.
