This demo will show you how to add a custom 404 Error Page through your cPanel.

The purpose of a 404 or Not Found error message is to let your visitors know that the server could not find what was requested. For example, if a visitor attempted to visit:

and you did not have a shop directory a 404 error message would be displayed to let the visitor know that the server could not find that directory (since it does not exist).
