If you have browsed a lot of Internet sites, you have probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error can occur when the website hosting server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you must log in in order to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't permitted to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file that isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404). Receiving this type of messages can sometimes be irritating because the pages have absolutely nothing 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 layout of your own website and which can have any content that you want - info why the error has taken place, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous remark. Such a function shall help you keep the visitor on the site no matter the error and the reason for it.

The feature is supported by all hosting solutions that we provide, so when you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Hosted Domains section, you may click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll show up, you can pick the type of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a standard Apache web server page or a personalized one. For the aforementioned option, you have to assign the URL to the page, so when you use personalized pages, you need to upload the files inside your Internet hosting account first. One other way is to use an .htaccess file placed in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The correct syntax can be located in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
