Status HTTP Codes

HTTP codes describe the status of a URL when a visitor attempts to access it. HTTP codes include error messages that describe the problems that visitors encounter. The codes are three-digit numbers.

The following table represents the five classes of HTTP codes, divided by the first digit:

First Digit Description
1, 2, or 3 A fully functional request (ie. the resource was loaded successfully)
4 A client-side error. The most common codes span 400 to 404.
For example, a 403 error means Forbidden, which means the visitor did not have the necessary permissions to access a resource, such as a specific page.
5 A server-side error. The most common codes span 500 to 510
For example, a 503 error means Server Unavailable, which means the server was unavailable, either overloaded or down for maintenance.
