What Can You Expect from an Error 404 Page?

Mistakes happen all the time, one of the most common online being typing in the wrong URL. Usually, when that happens for a specific site, an Error 404 page comes up informing them of that fact. To some, they seem drab and blindingly obvious, but some website owners have decided to have a little fun with them, producing striking results.

A good 404 page should tell you that what you’re looking for isn’t there and to be more helpful, direct you to the homepage or have a search widget. While some of the examples we’re about to show you don’t have all that, they’re a lot less drab and uninspiring than the typical error page! Take a look for yourself:
