HTTP: Hypertext Transfer Protocol
The full form of HTTP is Hypertext Transfer protocol. HTTP is an application protocol used for data communication. It is the basis for data communication in the WWW (World Wide Web). It provides a standard for web browsers that allows users to exchange information over the Internet. HTTP is used to access any file or page through most websites. It makes use of the port no. 443 for data communication.
How does HTTP work?
When you enter a URL in your web browser to access a particular file or page, the protocol receives information from the server and requests the client for the web page. For this, you need to write http or https before the address of the page. For example: If you want to access any website like fullfom.com then you write: https://fullfom.com. HTTP clients typically use Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) connections to exchange communications with the server.
