HTTP, the Hypertext Transfer Protocol, is the application-level protocol that is used to transfer data on the Web. HTTP comprises the rules by which Web browsers and servers exchange information. Although most people think of HTTP only in the context. HTTP Is a request-response protocol. For example, a Web browser initiates a request to a server, typically by opening a TCP/IP connection. The request itself comprises..

A Protocol is a way for you to communicate why the computers on a network, and the internet is made up of a suite of protocols called TCP/IP.
The most common protocols you will find is HTTP or Hyper Text Transfer Protocol. Which allows you to view web pages
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) allows you to download things from remote servers.
SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) Allows you to send email.

Thanks for information ..

But if in my opinion, every web page address, HTTP defines the standard mechanism for the exchange of application-level messages between devices on the web. All the web services run over this protocol. HTTPS is a slight variation of HTTP, wherein the browser adds an encryption layer to protect the Internet traffic.

What different HTTP with HTTPS ??
any one help answer this question...
Thanks

Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application-level protocol for distributed, collaborative, hypermedia information systems. Its use for retrieving inter-linked resources, called hypertext documents, led to the establishment of the World Wide Web in 1990 by English physicist Tim Berners-Lee. There are two major versions, HTTP/1.0 that uses a separate connection for every document and HTTP/1.1 that can reuse the same connection to download, for instance, images for the just served page. Hence HTTP/1.1 may be faster as it takes time to set up such connections.

The standards development of HTTP has been coordinated by the World Wide Web Consortium and the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), culminating in the publication of a series of Requests for Comments (RFCs), most notably RFC 2616 (June 1999), which defines HTTP/1.1, the version of HTTP in common use.

Support for pre-standard HTTP/1.1 based on the then developing RFC 2068 was rapidly adopted by the major browser developers in early 1996. By March 1996, pre-standard HTTP/1.1 was supported in Netscape 2.0, Netscape Navigator Gold 2.01, Mosaic 2.7, Lynx 2.5, and in Internet Explorer 3.0. End user adoption of the new browsers was rapid. In March 1996, one web hosting company reported that over 40% of browsers in use on the Internet were HTTP 1.1 compliant. That same web hosting company reported that by June 1996, 65% of all browsers accessing their servers were HTTP/1.1 compliant. The HTTP/1.1 standard as defined in RFC 2068 was officially released in January 1997. Improvements and updates to the HTTP/1.1 standard were released under RFC 2616 in June 1999.

HTTP is a request/response standard as is typical in client-server computing. The client is an application (e.g. web browser, spider etc) on the computer used by an end-user, the server is an application running on the computer hosting the web site. The client—which submits HTTP requests—is also referred to as the user agent. The responding server—which stores or creates resources such as HTML files and images—may be called the origin server. In between the user agent and origin server may be several intermediaries, such as proxies, gateways, and tunnels.

HTTP is not constrained in principle to using TCP/IP, although this is its most popular application via the Internet. Indeed HTTP can be "implemented on top of any other protocol on the Internet, or on other networks." HTTP only presumes a reliable transport; any protocol that provides such guarantees can be used."

HTTP'S full name is hyertext transfer protocol which can establish the network of world wide web and formulate the conversion of application-level information to stand from the others.

Hi,

The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application protocol for distributed,
collaborative, and hypermedia information systems. HTTP is the foundation of data
communication for the World Wide Web.
Hypertext is structured text that uses logical links (hyperlinks) between nodes
containing text. HTTP is the protocol to exchange or transfer hypertext.
Development of HTTP was initiated by Tim Berners-Lee at CERN in 1989. Standards development
of HTTP was coordinated by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the World Wide Web
Consortium (W3C), culminating in the publication of a series of Requests for Comments (RFCs).
The first definition of HTTP/1.1, the version of HTTP in common use, occurred in RFC 2068 in 1997,
although this was obsoleted by RFC 2616 in 1999 and then again by RFC 7230 and family in 2014.
A later version, the successor HTTP/2, was standardized in 2015, and is now supported by major web servers.

HTTP is called a stateless protocol because each command is executed independently, without any
knowledge of the commands that came before it. This is the main reason that it is difficult to
implement Web sites that react intelligently to user input. This shortcoming of HTTP is being
addressed in a number of new technologies, including ActiveX, Java, JavaScript and cookies.

Thanks
