A 404 is an HTTP status code signifying that a server cannot locate the requested webpage or document at the specified URL. This typically occurs when a page has been deleted or moved without redirection, and the link pointing to it has not been updated. To enhance the user experience, a custom 404 page can be created to provide helpful information and navigation options, helping users find their way back to active parts of the website.
