What is HTTP All about HTTP(Part 1)


A basically HTTP stands for HyperText Transfer Protocol and HTTP is a protocol for HTML HTTP to create a connection between a web browser and web servers a foundation for collect data exchange on the Web and it is a client-server protocol.

Is there HTTP is an important topic?

Yes, we have many following things in HTTP like UserAgent, HTTP Cache, HTTP Cookies, CROS but don't worry I covered all these topics lets start with HTTP today.

How HTTP works :-

1.A simple work of HTTP is to send the request to the server from the web browser.
2.After the server is processed you request and try to fulfill your request.
3.then we get a response back and with the use of javascript, we can access that data.

Check the next image to understand how its works I created a simple diagram of HTTP.
