Absa’s witty new 404 page

Absa has launched a revamped website and banking app to bring its online banking into an a 24/7 connected digital age.

As part of its new website, the company has a witty 404 page to alert people that they have requested a page which does not exist.

The 404 error message is an 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.

When a client requests a page which does not exist, a browser will return a “The webpage cannot be found” message.

Many websites have custom 404 pages, which is what Absa has created. The following message greets people who request a page which does not exist on the Absa website:

Well Done! You have found a rare broken link.

David Attenborough would be proud of your ability to find this rare and almost one of a kind “broken link”. Our highly specialised broken link recovery team has been called and is on the way via super secret submarine.
