If you have browsed loads of websites, you've probably stumbled upon some error message now and again. An error may occur if the website hosting server can't process a request (Error 400), if you must log in to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you are not permitted to access a webpage (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which is not on the web server (Error 404). Receiving this kind of messages may often be aggravating since the pages have nothing in common with the actual site. That’s why some website hosting service providers allow you to apply your own error pages that will match the style of your own site and that may have any content which you would like - information why the error has taken place, a suggestion what you can do or even some humorous remark. This sort of feature shall help you keep the visitor on the website irrespective of the error and the reason for it.
Custom Error Pages in Website Hosting
You can set up personalized error pages for all of your websites effortlessly when you use any of our Linux website hosting. This could be done via the Hosted Domains part of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts and once you go there, you'll be able to set your personalized pages independently for any domain or subdomain. You should upload the files to your account before you start and input the links to them through the process. This feature can be de-activated anytime and the options you shall be able to to select from are a conventional page from our system or a default Apache web server page. Custom made error pages could be set with an .htaccess file as well. The file should be placed in the domain or subdomain folder and it should include some system code and links to the pages. If you're not tech-savvy, you could copy the whole content needed for the file from our Help section.
Custom Error Pages in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Adding your pages for any of the four error types to any Internet site hosted through a semi-dedicated server account with us will be really easy and won't take more than a few mouse clicks.

In case you select the aforementioned option, you need to type the link to each and every page in your account, then save the change.
