Set the 404 page

Last Updated: Sep 29, 2017

If a website visitor requests web services through a browser, but uses a URL that does not exist, is incorrect, or has been deleted from the server, the web server returns an error message: 404 Not Found.

The 404 page content

Generally, the default 404 pages preset by most web servers do not meet requirements. You can design and upload a 404 error page that meet your requirements and which can contain the following content:

  • A jump link, such as “Back to the index page”.

  • A prompt indicating that the visitor enters an incorrect URL and asking the visitor to enter the URL again.

  • A prompt asking the visitor to submit the invalid link to the administrator.

  • A public service announcement explaining why a 404 message is being returned.
