HTTP is an access protocol for web pages over the Internet. HTTP stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol that is translated into Spanish as the “hypertext transfer protocol“.
HTTP is one of the 3 basic technologies developed for the creation of the web in 1990 by Tim Berners Lee. The web as an information management system for the transmission of data over the Internet requires 3 basic elements for its operation: HTTP, URL and HTML.
The HTTP is the protocol used to communicate with the web server in order to access a web page or web browser. For example, the following website address begins with http: https://www.abbreviationfinder.org/acronyms/http.html
The URL is the specific address for the location of the resources (web pages, web browsers) available on the network or the web. An example URL looks like this: https://www.abbreviationfinder.org/acronyms/url.html
The HTML is the language used to encode information in web resources.
In this sense, the HTML language is used to create any resource on the Internet. To access it, the HTTP protocol is used, which is the most used to access pages through the Internet, along with a URL that will determine the exact address to find the resource.
URL is the acronym for Uniform Resource Locator, which in Spanish stands for Uniform Resource Locator .
As such, the URL is the specific address assigned to each of the resources available on the network so that they can be located or identified. Thus, there is a URL for each of the resources (pages, sites, documents, files, folders) that are on the World Wide Web .
The URL was created by Tim Berners-Lee and first used in 1991. However, as of 1994, the concept of URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) which in Spanish means Uniform Resource Identifier, absorbed that of URL, due to That the first was more general. However, URL is still the most common designation outside the specialized fields.
The URL is used to find a resource on the Internet. For example if you want to search for an article on our page ‘meanings.com’ you know that the URL that will take you to it is https://www.definitionexplorer.com. This address consists of:
- ‘https: //’that would be the access protocol for internet pages. Another example is the ‘ftp: //’ which is the protocol for downloading files.
- ‘www’ which is the address of the resource.
- ‘.definitionexplorer’ would be the domain name and
- ‘.com’is the type of domain. These can be generic like .net, .org, .mobi or territorial like .mx, .ar, .cl. Today the type of domain is being diversified and can contain complete phrases such as .google or .maps.
The hiperligaciones or links are words that have a URL attached to it and its symbol is the union of two links in a chain. For example you may want to know about the HTML meaning by clicking on hyperligation here .
On the other hand, URL is also the acronym of the Rafael Landívar University of Guatemala, and the Ramón Llull University of Barcelona, Spain.
URL and what it is for
The URL is for us to find what we are looking for on the web: a page, a site, a file, a document, etc. In this sense, the URL allows an information resource to be found by our internet browser, and it decodes it and shows it to us in the appropriate way.
Hence, the URL contains various information: the name of the computer that provides the information, the directory in which it is located, the name of the file, as well as the protocol that we must use to recover the data.
URL and its features
The URL is a simple address that combines four fundamental information elements: the protocol (for example, HTTP or HTTPS), the server or host with which communication is established, the network port on the server to connect to and, finally, the path to the resource or file that you are trying to access on the server.
