An improper URL entered for the link by the webpage owner. The destination website removed the linked website. (known as a 404 error)But what is a 404 error page? To answer this, we must first understand what a 404 error is. A 404 DNS error is commonly known as a File Not Found error. This is what you see when you type in a URL that does not exist into your browser's address bar. Usually, the server returns something akin to 404 - File Not Found. If a search engine comes across such an error, it can have a negative impact on your search engine visibility. The solution to this is the creation of a custom error page, usually named 404.htm. When this page is extant on the server, instead of a File Not Found error being returned, the 404.htm file is returned. It can be thought of as a "catch-all" page, that is displayed when no file corresponding to the file called upon in the address bar exists.
