205 Reset Content

The HTTP 205 status code means a request was successful, and the user agent should reset the document view to its original form.

Theoretically, after a user submits an HTML form, a browser should clear the form upon receiving the 205 Reset Content response. Similar to 204 No Content, servers shouldn’t include a response (payload) body with 205 Reset Content.

Most clients don’t handle this response code properly, so you’re better off using either the 200 OK or 204 No Content status codes.
