Thanks for sharing link
It is good to have a customize 404 page.

Hello guys...

The Error 404 "Page not found" is the error page displayed whenever someone asks for a page that’s simply not available on your site and the document or file requested by the client was not found.

nice link! thanks a lot!


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. A 404 error 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. A 404 error indicates that the requested resource may be available again in the future.

Every site must have a custom "404 page" that tries to help people to find what they thought they'd find. Experienced web developers know that such a page is essential for a large, high-traffic site. 

Here are some ideas for designing more user-friendly error pages:
1. Don't redirect them automatically to the home page! This is evil!

2. Show a friendlier error message. Use a more informal tone. "Oops! We couldn't find this page for you. Try these options:" sounds a lot better than "Error. Missing page".

3. Please reply promptly to all mail from users who got a 404 page. Don't stop at the autoresponder. Write back to them, tell them how to find what they were looking for, and do it within 24 hours of the error. Prompt customer service is so rare on the Web that it will really be appreciated by your visitors.
