Custom Error Pages
Understand what a Custom Error Page is, what function does it serve and ways to set up one.
If you have browsed loads of websites, you have probably come across some error message once in a while. An error could take place in case the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access some page (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Getting such messages can sometimes be irritating because the pages have absolutely nothing in common with the actual website. That’s why some web hosting service providers permit you to use your own error pages that will match the layout of your own site and which could have any content that you'd like - info why the error has appeared, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous remark. This type of feature can help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting
You can set up custom error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The feature is supported by all website hosting package that we provide, so after you log in to your Hepsia CP and visit the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will appear, you could pick the kind of error page that should appear - a default one from our system, a conventional Apache server page or a custom one. For the latter option, you must specify the URL to the page, so when you use personalized pages, you should upload the files in your Internet hosting account first. An alternative way is to use an .htaccess file placed inside the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The actual syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this feature even if you do not have any previous experience.
