How do you change the default page that says "this page is not found on this server"?

Where is it located so i can change it? Because i want to change if for my own.

Its the 404 error ("page not found"), like this is a example of a server pages not found

Just to be clear the page is not their i just want to change the page that is shown if that page is not found on that server.

Add the following line to your .htaccess file

ErrorDocument 404 /404.html

where 404.html is the name of your html document which will show when handling 404 error.
