HTTP Getting started with HTTP HTTP requests and responses


Example

HTTP clients and servers send HTTP requests and responses, respectively

HTTP describes how an HTTP client, such as a web browser, sends an HTTP request via a network to an HTTP server, which then sends an HTTP response back to the client.

The HTTP request is typically either a request for an online resource, such as a web page or image, but may also include additional information, such as data entered on a form. The HTTP response is typically a representation of an online resource, such as a web page or image.
