HTTP Status Code Range Meanings - 100, 200, 300, 400, 500

I wanted to sure up that I knew what a general 100-500 status code’s meant when I received them as response’s from a server or browser so I went about exploring the internet and derived (very generally):

100’s - these are not seen often, but they internal to the browser for the browsers own reference. 200’s - success codes. These indicate that the request issued was successfully fulfilled. 300’s - redirect codes. These codes are used to tell the browser or server that some other action needs to take place to complete the previous request. 400’s - client errors. These indicates an error on the requesters behalf. 500’s - server errors. These indicates an error on the servers behalf.
