Specify Customized Pages to Handle Erroneous Page Requests

Take a few minutes to customize your Internet Information Server (IIS) site by specifying a page (other than the default) to handle erroneous page requests. The standard response page looks like this:
 
HTTP Error 404
404 Not Found

The Web server cannot find the file or script you asked for. Please check the URL to 
ensure that the path is correct. Please contact the server's administrator if this problem 
persists.
It is simple in the IIS admin program to specify a different page. Go into your Default Web Site properties, and select the Custom Errors tab. You will see a list of error codes and their associated pages. Replace the associated page with one that looks more consistent with your site, and give your users a more descriptive message or show the site map. This technique helps your site look more professional.
