New Feature - Add a Custom 404 Page to Your Site!

Every once in a while someone goes looking for something on your website that doesn’t exist. Maybe they typed something wrong or you moved the page and didn’t 301 redirect the old URL, or maybe something else went wrong. In that case, Wix shows this standard page:

Wix Standard 404 Page

The question is will your average web user know what 404 means? ....and will they understand that "Go Back Home" means that this takes them to your website's home page?

New Feature

Wix now has a new feature, you can make a custom 404 page for your site! How do you do that?'s very simple:

  1. Create a page in the editor and name it "error404";

  2. Make sure to hide the page from the menu;

  3. Make sure your site is UPGRADED. This is a premium feature ONLY;

  4. Add to text, a link to your home page, and your logo or anything else that you like.

Example 404 Page

This is the example of the 404 Page we have on our WixCreate website:

What Should be on a Good 404 Error Page?

Try this:

  • Make it clear that the visitor is still on your site. Add your company logo and use the same page design as the rest of your site.

  • Tell them what went wrong – “We couldn’t find the page you were looking for” or something similar.

  • Make sure this is written as such that they can understand.

  • Keep it short!

  • Help them find what they were looking for, and give them some navigation options to get to other parts of your site.

  • If you have an e-commerce site you can use your 404 page as an opportunity to show a few products.

  • If it fits with your brand image, you can use some humor.
