HTTP status codes | Client Error Responses
The browser and the site server have a conversation in the form of HTTP status codes. The server gives responses to the browser’s request in the form of a three-digit code known as HTTP status codes. The categorization of HTTP status codes is done in five sections which are listed below.
- Informational responses (100–199)
- Successful responses (200–299)
- Redirects (300–399)
- Client errors (400–499)
- Server errors (500–599)
Client Error Responses:
- 400 Bad Request: This response code occurs when the server could not understand the request because an invalid syntax is used.
400 Bad Request
- 401 Unauthorized: This response code occurs when the server refuses to respond to the request because the request lacks client authentication to get the resources.
- 402 Payment Required: The response code 404 is reserved for future use. The aim of creating this response code is for the digital payment system.

- 403 Forbidden: This response code occurs when the client wants to access the content but it does not have the right to access the content as it is unauthorized.
- 404 Not Found: This response code occurs when the server cannot find the resources requested by the client. This code can also be sent by the server instead of error 403 to hide the resources from the unauthorized client. Error 404 is one of the most famous response codes on the web.Status:
404 Not Found
- 405 Method Not Allowed: This response code occurs when the server knows the method of the request but currently it has been disabled by the server.
