"Status Code 301: Moved Permanently" Error Handling?

So I was another member getting the 301 status code from the site, and noticed in another question this was due to the API moving to SSL. With that said, even when using console.error it was giving a connection refused error from localhost.

If the questions didn't exist, and there wasn't an API, how could we as programmers learn this solution on our own? Since the status is "Moved Permanently", is there any way to get a more verbose error that would give a better indication that this would have moved to SSL? A matter of fact, are there even other causes for 301s?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Dennis,

Here's a list of all the standardized HTTP status codes. Let me know if that answers your question.
