Set up a custom 404 page
404 pages display when someone tries to access a page on your website that doesn't exist.
Our hosting accounts allow you to use your home page as your 404 page, or you can create a custom one.
Note: Server-side scripts, such as ASP.NET and PHP, might not work on custom 404 pages because of how Web server software (i.e. IIS and Apache) handles them.
