Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP)

HTTP is a protocol (set of rules) used when transmitting files (data) over the world wide web.

When you browse the WWW using a web browser, you are using the HTTP protocol.

Often, you will now see the HTTPS protocol used instead of HTTP.  HTTPS is an encrypted and secure version of HTTP.
