HTTP Status and Error Codes

HTTP Status and Error Codes

HTTP status and error codes are responses that are given by the website servers. The status codes are informational codes while HTTP error codes show an error.

The purpose of these codes is to communicate the cause of the issue so that it can be resolved. You must have seen most of these codes on the internet while browsing like HTTP 404, HTTP 500 and others.

Every HTTP status and error code has two parts:

  1. The code (such as HTTP 404)
  2. The reason phrase (such as Not found)
