The 404 or Not Found error message is a HTTP standard response code indicating that the client was able to communicate with a given server, but the server could not find what was requested.

Basically, Soft 404 is a page that looks like a 404 but returns a HTTP status code 200. I mean, the website might show a “Page Not Found”-style page, but search engines such as Google will see the page and think that it’s an actual live page.

404 errors means page doesn't exist, we have to redirect it on another webpage for better.

The 404 Error/404 Not Found Error means when you were trying to reach a webpage which could not be found on the server. It is a Client-side Error which means that either the page has been removed or moved or you typed the URL incorrectly.

when someone requests a webpage that doesn't exist on the server instead of user will be re-directed to the home page or specific page of that website.

Usually, when a visitor requests a page on your site that doesn’t exist, a web server returns a 404 (not found) error. This HTTP response code clearly tells both browsers and search engines that the page doesn’t exist. As a result, the content of the page (if any) won’t be crawled or indexed by search engines.

A 404 error is an HTTP status code that means that the page you were trying to reach on a website couldn't be found on their server. The 404 Not Found error might appear for several reasons even though no real issue exists, so sometimes a simple refresh will often load the page you were looking for. The most common method is to retry the web page by pressing F5, clicking the refresh/reload button, or trying the URL from the address bar again.
