Dear friend,

HTTP stands for ‘Hyper Text Transfer Protocol. ’It helps in the exchange of information between the web browser and the server. It is a form of protocol that enables you the web browser to be capable of communicating with the server which is the web serving the source. All web addresses must start with the initials http:// because this acts as the root with which the search engine can easily recognize and eventually be displayed on the search engine.

All web addresses ought to have a protocol which is the HTTP and the web address which is http://www.google.com/.

Therefore,http is essential in communication and exchange of information among the billions of existing computers.

Hope this was helpful.

Regards.

HTTPS is an acronym for “Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure”.

It is used for secure communication over the Internet. It secures authentication of web-site on the Internet and related web-server, and in that way it protects you from MITM attacks (also known as bucket brigade attacks).

WWW is an acronym for World Wide Web.

In earlier stage of Internet, it had to be typed to distinguish FTP sites from HTTP sites. Nowadays, you don’t even need to type “www.” in modern browsers – browser will recognize domain name and automatically add http://www to the address line.
