  • 2XX - Successful - Website is up & reachable.

  • 3XX - Redirect - The website is accessible, but the browser is redirected to another page.

  • 4XX - Browser Error - The requested page is not available or doesn’t exist.

  • 5XX - Server Error - There are internal errors on the server.

The status code helps developers and users to understand what’s happening with a certain request. This also serves as a guide to take appropriate actions if needed.

The HTTP response time is the amount of time it takes a website to respond to a request made by your device. It calculates how long it takes for a website to load after you click on a link or type a URL into your browser.
