HTTP DELETE Method

The DELETE method is used to delete a resource from the server.
Unlike GET and HEAD requests, the DELETE requests may change the server state.

Sending a message body on a DELETE request might cause some servers to reject the request.
But you still can send data to the server using URL parameters. This is usually an ID of the resource you want to delete.

The following example demonstrates sending a DELETE request to the server:

And the server response:
