404 Error Day


Today, on April 4th, we celebrate "404 Day" (also known as "International Internet Day")! At first glance, this day might seem exceptionally unusual for celebration, but for many, it signifies something significant. Let's delve into the history and meaning of this date together.

The four numbers of the fourth month, 4.04, have become a symbolic day for many Internet users around the world. They are associated with that error message that seems to pop up at the most inconvenient moments of our online adventures.

Error 404

But what compels us to mark this day? Since its inception in the 1990s, April 4th has attracted active Internet users as a symbolic moment to celebrate all things related to the World Wide Web. However, there are other contenders for the title of Internet Day. For example, May 17th, when the standard for WWW pages developed by Tim Berners-Lee was approved. Nevertheless, among all these dates, April 4th seems to stand out particularly. And it's not just because it was approved by the Vatican!

In 1998, the Catholic Church recognized the Internet as a treasure trove of human knowledge, and in 2000, Saint Isidore of Seville was proclaimed the patron saint of the Internet. Isidore created the first European encyclopedia, and Pope John Paul II argued for his choice by stating that the Internet is an encyclopedia of human knowledge. Thus, Saint Isidore became a symbol of wisdom and knowledge, which we value so much in the online world.

But what is 404? For those unfamiliar with the term, HTTP uses three-digit codes to transmit error messages. The first digit, 4, indicates that the error occurred on the user's side, and the subsequent two digits, 04, indicate the sequential status number in the 4xx block. Thus, 404 means "Not Found."

Interestingly, according to statistics, almost three-quarters of users immediately leave the page upon receiving a 404 error to find information elsewhere. However, many websites, including those developed in "Cloud Solutions", use customized 404 pages to achieve various goals, including marketing. In addition to keeping users on the site, this also increases brand loyalty and may stimulate repeat visits.

Thus, "404 Day" is not just a reminder of glitches and errors in the online world, but also an opportunity to celebrate our ability to adapt and creatively solve problems. This day speaks to the fact that even from mistakes, lessons can be learned and something new and amazing can be created. So let's celebrate "404 Day" as a holiday of our ability to creatively solve problems and strive for improvement in the online world!
