The: 404 File Not Found Error Page
I am pretty sure at some point in time, that most Internet surfers have see an HTTP 404 error message. This happens when you click on a URL link and you start your journey to that web page and then you get the famous “404 file not found error page” message.
The 404 or Not Found error message is a HTTP standard response code indicating that the client was able to communicate with the server but the server could not find what was requested. 404 errors should not be confused with “server not found” or similar errors, in which a connection to the destination server could not be made at all.
The old faithful standard default 404 page not found error page will display a message like this below.
404: File Not Found Error Page
The page you’re looking for cannot be found
If you feel you’ve encountered this problem due to an error, please inform our webmaste
There are a number of possible reasons for this.
* You have recently redesigned your site which caused a change in many of our URLs.
* If you’ve typed a URL, perhaps it is incorrect or contains a typo.
If you find that the default 404 page not found error page is pretty boring, you can create a custom HTTP 404 error page with a simple html editor and a graphics program.
Just create the HTTP 404 page with your html editor and name it, notfound.html and edit the .htaccess and add this statement, “ErrorDocument 404 /notfound.html” without the brackets.
