  • creating 404 error pages

    When you create a website, are you able to create your own 404 error pages as well? What are the important elements to have in a 404?

    Yes, You can! check this out!

    Content of a 404 Error Page
    A 404 response code is always followed by a human readable reason phrase as per the HTTP specification. Generally, a web server issues an HTML page that has the 404 code and the “Not Found” phrase by default. You can configure a web server to display a branded page with a better description and a search form. But the protocol level phrase requires no customization as it is hidden from the user.

      i usually use a template of the site intact with navigation, almost like a sitemap page and in the body area I include 404 message. This will allow the user to navigate anywhere on my site from the 404 page instead of leaving the site.

        A 404 page is a familiar way to indicate that someone is trying to access a non-existent page, but if you want to keep people on your site, there's a lot you can do to make your 404 page more useful
