Frequently asked questions
HTTP ("HyperText Transfer Protocol") is the de facto protocol of the Internet and is built on top of TCP/IP at the application layer in the Internet protocol suite model for distribution and collaboration, supporting hypermedia information systems. HTTP is the foundation of the World Wide Web. It allows users to load web pages using hypertext links. Your browser "speaks" HTTP whenever you see it referenced in a URL starting with "http://" which then creates TCP/IP network traffic to resolve the address which follows into a particular machine in a specific "port" (which is typically 80 for standard web traffic).
