The browser’s default 404 page is not friendly for visitors, usually, the visitor will close it directly, and will not visit it again.

But, we may leave some 404 links due to deleting/moving/upgrading resources/pages, so we can modify the default 404 page in your WEB control panel to give visitors with a friendly notice and the link of homepage, it maybe let you give some customers – someone has seen the notice but still want to enter your site, demonstrate he/she really needs your resource. The following is my 404 page code, very simple, just for your reference:
