Frequently Asked Questions

HTTP stands for hypertext transfer protocol. It is the foundation for the worldwide web. You use HTTP every day to load different websites by clicking on hyperlinks. An HTTP request involves you sending a request to the server. The server then responds with a response. It allows you to communicate data on the world wide web.
An HTTP request involves a client sending a request to the server. The server then responds with a message. The status codes sent back by the server in response to client requests are called HTTP codes. The status codes are from IETF Request For Comments (RFCs).
The HTTP codes are a way of communication between your browser and the server. They can communicate if everything is as it should be or if there is something wrong. The status codes can help diagnose errors quickly.

What does a status code number mean?

1xx – Informational responses. This status code indicates that the server is processing your request.
2xx – Successful. This indicates that your request was received and accepted.
3xx – Redirection. This shows that your request was received, but you got redirected somewhere else.
4xx – Client error. This means that that you made some syntax error, or the page does not exist.
5xx – Server errors. This indicates that the server failed to respond to your valid request.
HTTP Status Code 401 - Unauthorized
HTTP Status Code 404 - Not Found
HTTP Status Code 500 - Internal Server Error
HTTP Status Code 502 - Bad Gateway
HTTP Status Code 301 - Moved Permanently
HTTP Status Code 302 - Found
HTTP Status Code 410 - Gone

What is a 1xx

A 1xx HTTP status code indicates that the server has received your request and is processing it. It means your request is not completed yet. There are four sub-classes of the 1xx code.

HTTP Status Code 100 - Continue
HTTP Status Code 101 – Switching Protocols
HTTP Status Code 102 - Processing
HTTP Status Code 103 – Early Hints
HTTP Status Code 200 – OK is a standard response against a successful HTTP request. The response depends on whether the POST or GET method was used. The POST request returns an entity because of an action. The GET request returns an entity that corresponds to the requested source.
HTTP Status Code 301 – Moved Permanently. This indicates that the requested URL is directed towards a different source. The 301 status code can be used for pages that are no longer available. This helps redirect your request to some home page rather than an error page.
HTTP Status Code 302 – Found is the same as 301 with a slight difference. 302 temporarily redirects your request. In contrast to 301, the 302 status code does not inform search engines to update the index.
HTTP Status Code 401 – Unauthorized. This means you need the authorization to get access to the requested page. You must authenticate yourself to get the requested response.
HTTP Status Code 403 – Forbidden means you do not have the right to access the requested URL. The server refuses to return the requested source to you.
HTTP Status Code 404 – Not Found indicates that the resource you are looking for can no longer be found. The server cannot return any response to it. 404 status pages can impact the user experience.
HTTP Status Code 410 – Gone indicates that the resource was once available on the URL. But now it is gone or permanently deleted from the server. 410 has no forwarding redirect.
HTTP Status Code 500 – Internal Server Error is returned when unexpected conditions happen. This is a generic error message when nothing else can be returned.
HTTP Status Code 502 – Bad Gateway. This is returned when the server is acting as a gateway and gets an invalid message from an upstream server.
HTTP Status Code 503 – Service Unavailable indicates that the server cannot handle requests. This is because the server is down for maintenance, or it is overloaded with requests. 503 is a temporary state.
HTTP Status Code 504 – Gateway Timeout. This is returned when the server is acting as a proxy and cannot get a response in time from the upstream server.
