HTTP Status Codes
Domec uses conventional HTTP response codes to indicate the success or failure of an API request.
In general, codes in the
2xx range indicate success, codes in the
4xx range indicate an error that failed given the
information provided (e.g., a required parameter was omitted, a charge failed, etc.), and codes in the
indicate an error with Domec’s servers (these are rare we hope).
Not all errors map cleanly onto HTTP response codes, however.
When a request is valid but does not complete successfully (e.g., a card is declined), we return a
402 error code.
HTTP status code summary
|200 - OK||Everything worked as expected|
|400 - Bad Request||The request was unacceptable, often due to missing a required parameter.|
|401 - Unauthorized||No valid API key provided|
|402 - Request Failed||The parameters were valid but the request failed.|
|404 - Not Found||The requested resource doesn’t exist.|
|409 - Conflict||The request conflicts with another request (perhaps due to using the same idempotent key).|
|429 - Too Many Requests||Too many requests hit the API too quickly.|
|500, 502, 503, 504 - Server Errors||Something went wrong on Domec’s end.|
