50 Cool and Creative 404 Error Pages (Part I)

ERROR 404 — PAGE NOT FOUND! I bet you’ve already run into a 404 error page many times before. (For those living in a cave: a 404 error page occurs when you try to open a page or a file that doesn’t exist on a website’s server). Sometimes it can be due to a programming mistake or the user has simply entered the link wrong. Most often a 404 page has a lot of text and looks ugly. Right? And what do we do when we see something ugly? Run away! Close that ugly peace of sh** faster! That’s our reaction.

So instead of scaring your page viewers and potential customers, why not create a funny 404 page to catch your visitor’s attention instead? It’s more pleasant on the eye too — remember, you don’t want to lose them! Another thing, a clever 404 page will politely tell the user why could this happen and what they should do next.

I’m pretty sure that 99% of web developers think that such a little thing as a customized error page is unimportant. For us, it’s one of the best practices and coding standards, and Panda thinks that such little details separate you from the rest of the crowd. So, check out these examples of hilarious 404 pages found online!
P.S. If you happen to run into a creative 404 error page, feel free to share it in the comment section.
