2xx Status Codes
What is HTTP Status?
HTTP status codes are three-digit codes returned by an HTTP server to indicate the status of a requested resource. The 2xx status codes indicate success; among them, the 200 status code is the most common.
The HTTP 200-OK
A 200 OK status code indicates that the request was successful and that the server has returned the requested resource. This status code is returned in response to a GET, HEAD, or POST request. When a client sends a GET request for a resource, a 200 OK response indicates that the resource is available and has been returned to the client.
The HTTP 201- Created
A 201 Created status code indicates that a resource has been successfully created as a result of a POST request. This status code is returned when a client sends a POST request to create a new resource, such as a new blog post or a new user. The server returns a 201 Created status code and a Location header containing the URL of the newly created resource.
The HTTP 202- Accepted
A 202 Accepted status code indicates that a request has been accepted for processing but has not been completed. This status code is often used in asynchronous processing, where a client sends a request to the server and then continues with other tasks while the server processes the request.
The HTTP 204- No Content
A 204 No Content status code indicates that the server has successfully processed a request, but there is no content to return. This status code is often used in response to a DELETE request, where the server successfully deletes a resource but does not return any content to the client.
In conclusion, the 2xx status codes indicate success and are used to indicate the outcome of a variety of different requests. Whether you’re creating a resource, retrieving a resource, or processing a request, the 2xx status codes provide a clear indication of the status of the request and the outcome of the operation.
