35 Cool Examples of 404 Error Pages

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. The reason for this is that there may be a link on your site that was wrong, broken, dead or the page might have been recently removed from the site. As there is no web page to display, the web server sends a page that simply says “404 Page not found”.

These web designers have put their best efforts to design their error pages creative and presentable. So instead of letting their site readers bump heads with a dull and boring dead-end error message, they’ve managed to squeeze a little entertainment out of it.

So in the following posts i have managed to select 35 cool examples of entertaining and nice “404 error pages”. They are worth watching. I hope you will like them and do share your favorite “404 error pages” in the comments below.

    just being a tech–know-savvy geek, can you explaing these creative 404 messages … do the site owners know they have a 404 message and therefore decide to dress it up? Or, is it a pro-active step in case they ever have a dead end page come up? I understand, leaving a “forwarding address” on a 404 message if you’ve changed websites. Just curious and wanting to understand how things work.

    Thanks for any HELPFUL responses.
