# Making HTTP Requests

Akixi REST API requests are HTTP requests as defined in RFC 2616. (For more information, go to https://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616.html.) A typical REST action consists of sending an HTTP request to Akixi service, against a resource, and waiting for the response. Like any HTTP request, a REST request to Akixi service contains a request method, a resource URI, request headers, and any applicable query strings or request body. The response contains an HTTP status code, response headers, and any applicable response body.
