If a particular page on an Internet site doesn't load for some reason or in case a link is not working, the visitor will see an error page with some generic message. The page will have nothing in common with the rest of the website, that can make the visitor leave your website. A solution in this case is a function offered by some website hosting service providers - the ability to set up your own personalized error pages which shall have exactly the same style and design as your site and which may contain any images or text you want dependent upon the particular error. There are four standard errors which may occur and they involve these particular so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your Internet browser sends a bad request to the server and it can't be processed; 401, if you're supposed to log in to see a web page, but you have not done this yet; 403, if you do not have a permission to view a certain page; and 404, in case a link which you've clicked leads to a file that doesn't exist. In all of these situations, website visitors shall be able to see your customized content instead of a generic error page.

Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting

You shall be able to set up customized error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all web hosting package which we offer, so after you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will show up, you could pick the sort of error page which should appear - a default one from our system, a standard Apache server page or a customized one. For the latter option, you need to specify the URL to the page, so when you use customized pages, you need to upload the files inside your hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file positioned inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each error type. The actual syntax can be found in our Knowledge Base, to help you use this feature even if you do not have any previous experience.
