If you have browsed many sites, you've probably come across some error message now and again. An error could take place when the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in so that you can see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which is not on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages may often be annoying since the pages don't have anything in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting service providers permit you to use your own error pages that will match the design of your own website and that could have any content which you would like - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion how to proceed or even some humorous remark. Such a feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website whatever the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Web Hosting
The customized error pages feature is available with each and every web hosting plan that we offer and you'll be able to swap the generic pages with your own with no more than a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. You will have to produce the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You may do this for every site hosted in the account separately, so that each set of custom pages shall have identical style and design as the site it is part of. When necessary, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. An alternate way to set personalized error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to add a few lines in it. If you never done this before, you could simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article on this subject.

In case you do not want to use this function at some point, you could disable it just as easily and pick an Apache server page or a default page from our system to be displayed whenever your visitors encounter an error.
