If a specific page on a site does not load for some reason or if a link is broken, the visitor shall see an error page with a generic message. The page will have nothing in common with the rest of the Internet site, which may make the visitor leave your Internet site. A potential solution in such a case is a feature offered by some web hosting providers - the ability to set your own custom error pages which shall have the exact same design and style as your website and which can contain any text or images that you'd like dependent upon the particular error. There are 4 well-known errors that could take place and they involve these so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your browser sends a bad request to the hosting server and it can't be processed; 401, if you're supposed to log in to see some webpage, but you have not done this yet; 403, if you don't have a permission to see a particular page; and 404, in case a link that you have clicked leads to a file which does not exist. In each of these cases, site visitors will be able to see your custom made content as opposed to a generic error page.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting
The personalized error pages function is provided with each shared hosting package which we offer and you shall be able to replace all generic pages with your own with no more than a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You will need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, and then to set them for a given domain or subdomain via the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel. You may do this for each and every site hosted inside the account independently, so that every set of personalized pages shall have the exact same style and design as the website it's part of. If necessary, you can always return back to a default page from our system or to the default Apache server page. One other way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file in the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you may simply copy the necessary program code from our Help article about the subject.
