What is HTTP? – Definition

HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol) – a protocol that automatically appears in the browser window once the URL is entered. It enables communication between a client and a server. The HTTP protocol defines how the content is made available and how the server can read it.

This protocol uses cookies to track users and gather data.
