If a certain page on an Internet site does not load for some reason or in case a link is not working, the website visitor shall see an error page with some generic message. The page will have nothing in common with the rest of the site, that may make the visitor leave your Internet site. A likely solution in such a case is a feature made available from some hosting providers - the ability to set your own personalized error pages which shall have exactly the same style and design as your site and that can contain any text or images which you want depending on the specific error. There are 4 common errors which may take place and they involve these particular so-called HTTP status codes - 400, when your browser sends a bad request to the hosting server and it cannot be processed; 401, if you are supposed to log in to see a page, but you have not done so yet; 403, if you do not have an authorization to view a particular page; and 404, if a link that you have clicked leads to a file which doesn't exist. In any of these scenarios, visitors shall be able to see your personalized content rather than a generic error page.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting
The personalized error pages function is offered with each and every shared hosting package which we offer and you'll be able to replace all generic pages with your own with no more than just a few mouse clicks inside your Hepsia website hosting CP. You will need to create the actual files and to upload them to your account, then to set them for a specific domain or subdomain using the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia CP. You may do this for every Internet site hosted inside the account individually, so that every group of custom made pages shall have the same layout as the Internet site it's part of. When necessary, you can always revert back to a default page from our system or to a default Apache server page. One other way to set custom made error pages is to create an .htaccess file inside the domain/subdomain root folder and to include a few lines in it. If you haven't done this before, you could simply copy the needed program code from our Help article on the subject.
