If you have looked at loads of Internet sites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message once in a while. An error may take place if the 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 permitted to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the web server (Error 404). Getting this sort of messages can sometimes be frustrating because the pages don't have anything in common with the actual Internet site. That’s why some web hosting providers permit you to apply your own error pages that will match the style of your own website and which may have any content that you want - information why the error has occurred, a suggestion how to handle it or even some humorous comment. This sort of function shall help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error or the reason for it.

If you purchase a Linux website hosting package from us, you shall be able to set personalized error pages for your Internet sites quickly and easily, because this function is a part of all our plans. As soon as you've created the files and uploaded them to your website hosting account, you can go to the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel and click on the Edit button for the selected domain or subdomain. In the pop-up which will be displayed, you will see drop-down options menus for all four types of errors and for each of them you may select an Apache default page, a generic page from our system or a custom page. Should you choose the third option, you should simply enter the URL to the file that you have uploaded then 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 add several lines of program code in it. If you do not have prior experience or if you are just not sure how to do that, you may simply copy and paste the code from our Knowledge Base article on that matter.
