If a page on your Internet site doesn't load, an error message shall be shown to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what is standard for all of them is that they are generic and probably shall have practically nothing that is similar to the design of your site, which could be frustrating for any visitor. This is the main reason why hosting providers have introduced a function referred to as Custom Error Pages. For a variety of different errors, website visitors shall see your custom made content, which can be informative or humorous, in accordance with your personal preference, and that will match the overall design and style of your website, so the pages shall not appear as if they aren't part of your website at all. You may use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

Custom Error Pages in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to set up custom made error pages for any of your websites effortlessly when you use any of our Linux shared web hosting. This can be done through the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts and when you go there, you could set your personalized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You need to upload the files to your account before you start and enter the links to them through the process. This function could be de-activated whenever you want and the options you will be able to select from are a standard page from our system or a default Apache 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 must contain some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you may copy the whole content you'll need for the file from our Help section.

Including your own pages for each of the 4 error types to any Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us shall be very simple and shall not take more than a couple of mouse clicks.
