If you have checked out loads of Internet sites, you have probably encountered some error message from time to time. An error may take place when the hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not able to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving such messages can often be aggravating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting service providers allow you to set your own error pages which will match the layout of your own Internet site and that could have any content that you would like - details why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some witty comment. Such a function will help you keep the visitor on the website no matter the error or the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting
If you order a Linux shared package from us, you will be able to set personalized error pages for your websites easily and quickly, since this feature is part of all our solutions. As soon as you've created the files and uploaded them to your hosting account, you can check out the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the specific domain or subdomain. In the pop-up which will be displayed, you'll see drop-down options menus for all four sorts of errors and for each one of them you can pick an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a personalized page. If you choose the 3rd option, you should simply input the URL to the file that you've uploaded and save the change. A different way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain or subdomain folder and to include several lines of program code in it. If you do not have prior experience or if you are simply unsure how to do this, you can just copy/paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that subject.
