If a particular page on an Internet site does not load for some reason or if a link is not functioning, the website visitor will see an error page with some generic message. The page will have nothing in common with the rest of the Internet site, that may make the visitor leave your Internet site. A solution in cases like this is a function offered by some hosting service providers - the ability to set up your own custom-made error pages which shall have identical style and design as your Internet site and that could contain any text or images that you would like dependent upon the specific error. There are four well-known errors which could occur and they involve these particular so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your world-wide web browser sends a bad request to the server and it cannot be processed; 401, if you're supposed to log in to see some webpage, but you have not done this yet; 403, if you do not have an authorization to see a certain page; and 404, in case a link that you have clicked leads to a file that does not exist. In any of these scenarios, site visitors will be able to see your custom content instead of a generic error page.

You'll be able to set up custom error pages for any of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all shared hosting solutions that we offer, so when you log in to your Hepsia CP and navigate to the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that"ll show up, you can pick the kind of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a typical Apache web server page or a personalized one. For the aforementioned option, you'll have to specify the URL to the page, so when you use custom made pages, you must upload the files inside your hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file positioned in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for every error type. The actual syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so that you can use this feature even if you do not have any previous experience.
