If a particular page on a website doesn't load for some reason or in case a link is not functioning, the website visitor shall see an error page with a generic message. The page shall have nothing in common with the rest of the site, that may make the visitor leave the website. A potential solution in cases like this is a function made available from some hosting service providers - the option to set your own custom error pages which will have exactly the same design and style as your site and that could contain any text or images you want dependent upon the particular error. There are four common errors that could take place and they involve these particular so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your web browser sends a bad request to the web 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 don't have an authorization to see a specific page; and 404, when a link which you have clicked leads to a file which does not exist. In any of these situations, site visitors will be able to see your personalized content as opposed to a generic error page.

Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting

You'll be able to set up customized error pages for all of your websites easily when you use any of our shared hosting. This can be done using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and when you go there, you could set your personalized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You must upload the files to your account before you start and enter the links to them during the process. This function could be de-activated at any time and the options you will be able to pick from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom error pages may be set with an .htaccess file too. The file should be put in the domain or subdomain folder and it must incorporate some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content necessary for the file from our Help section.
