  • What does the HTTP status code mean?

    I was trying to access a website but due to some issues it was not accessible and an error appeared.

    An HTTP status code is a message a website's server sends to the browser to indicate whether or not that request can be fulfilled.
    Status codes are embedded in the HTTP header of a page to tell the browser the result of its request.

      Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application-layer protocol for transmitting hypermedia documents, such as HTML.
      HTTP status codes are an invaluable tool for diagnosing and fixing website configuration errors.
      The W3C defines the specifications for status codes.

      Different status codes:
      a. 1xx: Explanatory
      b. 2xx: Congratulations!
      c. 3xx is a redirection. The requested page has been relocated.
      d. 4xx: An error occurred on the client's end. There's a problem with the way the browser requested the page.
      e. 5xx: An problem occurred on the server. The server attempted to send the page incorrectly.

            A server response to a browser's request is represented by an HTTP status code. When you visit a website, your browser sends a request to the site's server, and the server responds with a three-digit code known as the HTTP status code.
