45 Funny Graphical Presentation of 404 Error Page



“404 error page” – A common term to every internet users. But do you know from where it comes. In an office on the fourth floor (Room 404), an ambitious group of young scientists at CERN (Switzerland) located the World Wide Web’s central database. When the record of database started to increase, not only the amount of requests grew, but also increased the amount of requests that could not be fulfilled. Generally it occurs, because of requested a file in the incorrect name. Soon these error requests were replied with a regular message: “Room 404: file not found”. From where we get our today’s “404 error page”.

But today the error message is not bounded within a simple message, now this message comes with various visual presentations. Here you can see some great examples of this “404 error page” done by great designers.

    The gallery is great, but the story about the alleged “Room 404” is absurd. It must be a fake. The response codes in the internet protocols are made to be classified. The first “4” digit means that this is an error code, and the “04” means that is the fouth type of error in the protocol specs. Other prefixes are: “1” informational, “2” success, “3” redirection, etc… Is absurd to think that “404” was a room number.
