If a particular page on a website doesn't load for some reason or in case a link is not working, the visitor shall see an error page with some generic message. The page shall have nothing in common with the rest of the website, that may make the visitor leave your Internet site. A possible solution in such a case is a function made available from some hosting providers - the option to set your own personalized error pages that shall have the exact same style and design as your site and that may contain any images or text which you want depending on the specific error. There are four well-known errors which can take place and they involve the following 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 web page, but you haven't done this yet; 403, if you do not have a permission to view a particular page; and 404, when a link which you've clicked leads to a file which does not exist. In all of these cases, site visitors will be able to see your personalized content instead of a generic error page.
Custom Error Pages in Shared Hosting
You can set up personalized error pages for each of your Internet sites with ease when you use any of our shared hosting. This can be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts and when you go there, you can set your customized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account before you start and input the links to them during the process. This feature can be de-activated at any time and the options you will be able to choose from are a generic page from our system or a default Apache server page. Tailor-made error pages could be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be put into the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you are not tech-savvy, you could copy the entire content you'll need for the file from our Help section.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Servers

If necessary, you shall be able to revert this customization anytime and in exactly the same way. If you wish, you could use an .htaccess file too. It has to be created/uploaded in the domain or subdomain folder linked to the internet site whose error pages you would like to alter and the content for this type of file can be found in our Help article on this matter.
