HTTP

The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application protocol that is the foundation of data communication for the World Wide Web.

HTTP functions as a request–response protocol in a client–server computing model, with a web browser as the client and the server an application on a computer that hosts a website. The client submits an HTTP request, and the server, responds with content or performs other functions on behalf of the client, and returns a response message to the client. The response contains the completion status for the request, as well as requested content in the message body.
