  2. Click the Add New Page icon  next to Main Pages.
  3. Name your new page "error404".
    Note: Make sure that the page URL looks like the following example: https://www.mystunningwebsite.com/error404 
  4. Hide the page from search engines:
    1. Click the Show More icon  next to the relevant page.
    2. Click Page SEO.
    3. Click the Show the page in search results toggle to disable it. 
  5. Design the page to your liking. Below are some ideas:
    • Add vector illustrations related to error 404 in the Media from Wix folder of your Media Manager.  
    • Add links, buttons or a menu to help visitors navigate to other parts of your site. This minimizes the chances of your visitors leaving after getting the 404 error message.
    • If necessary, you can hide the master header and master footer on this page.
Make sure to check how the page looks like in all breakpoints.
