404 Error Improvement Console WordPress Plugin

Fix every 404 error, protect your WordPress website from hackers and increase user retention! The WordPress 404 Page Console is the best solution to manage those pesky “Page Not Found” issues – all while directing users to active and relevant content.

The 404 error console also protects your WordPress site from hackers, spam bots and scanners attempting to crash your site with DDoS (denial-of-service) attacks.

Use this 404 console plugin to manage redirections, automatically ban suspicious IPs and add unique content to each 404 URL page.


Ban Suspicious IPs

Don't waste time locating and dealing with attackers and spambots: block them automatically. Every time a machine accesses pages you choose, its IP will be registered and prevented from accessing the URL again.

Customize the message banned hackers and scanners will see.

You can also whitelist any number of IP addresses as well, so all your tests can be performed without hassle.
