HTTP status codes are a conversation between your browser and the site server. The server gives responses to the browser’s request in the form of a three-digit code known as HTTP status codes. The HTTP status codes are categorized into 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)
Redirection Responses:
  • 300 Multiple Choice: It is a link list. This request can have maximum five possible responses. The user can choose one of the links and go to the location. Status:
    300 Multiple Choice
  • 301 Moved Permanently: The 301 moved permanently means that the requested resource has permanently been moved to a new URL. The new URL is given in the response. Status:
    301 Moved Permanently
  • 302 Found: The 302 Found means that the requested resource has been moved temporarily to a new URL. The same URL should be used by visitors in a future request. Status:
    302 Found
  • 303 See Other: The requested resource can be found under an alternate URL. This is sent by the server to direct the visitor to another URL to get the requested page. Status:
    303 See Other
  • 304 Not Modified: This response indicated that the requested page has not been modified since last requested by the visitor. Status:
    304 Not Modified
  • 305 Use Proxy: 305 Use Proxy is a deprecated status code. This response is sent by the server so that the requested URL can be accessed by the proxy mentioned in the location header. Status:
    305 Use Proxy
  • 306 Switch Proxy: This response code is no longer in use. But, the code is reserved as it was used in the previous version. Status:
    306 Switch Proxy
  • 307 Temporary Redirect: The 307 temporary redirect means that the requested resource has been moved temporarily to a new URL. It shares the same semantics as of 302 Found, with the exception that the user agent must not change the HTTP method used. Status:
    307 Temporary Redirect
