HTTP Codes:
HTTP Status codes are returned by the server to the client to determine the outcome of a request.
Following are the list of HTTP status codes:
100 - Continue
> First part of the request has been received and that it should continue with the rest of the request or ignore if the request has been fulfilled.
101 - Switching Protocol
> Server will switch protocols to that specified in the Upgrade message header field during the current connection.

200 - OK
> The request sent was successful.
201 - Created
> The request was successful and a new resource was created.
202 - Accepted

203 - Non-Authoritative Information
> The returned meta information in the entity-header is not the definitive set as available from the origin server.
204 - No Content
