HTTP status codes

The IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) maintains the official registry of HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) status codes.

Microsoft IIS (Internet Information Services) sometimes uses additional decimal sub-codes for more specific information, however, these sub-codes only appear in the response payload and in the documentation, not in the place of an actual HTTP status code.

All HTTP response status codes are separated into five classes (or categories). The first digit of the status-code defines the class of response, the last two digits do not have any class or categorization role.
