4×× Client Error
404 Not Found
The origin server did not find a current representation for the target resource or is not willing to disclose that one exists.
A 404 status code does not indicate whether this lack of representation is temporary or permanent; the 410 Gone status code is preferred over 404 if the origin server knows, presumably through some configurable means, that the condition is likely to be permanent.
A 404 response is cacheable by default; i.e., unless otherwise indicated by the method definition or explicit cache controls1.
