Term HTTP means “to Hypertext Protocol Transfer”, in Spanish “Transfer protocol of Hypertext”. For that they do not have experience in computer terms, this can seem complicated, but in fact it is not it if we examined this subject by parts. A protocol is a set of rules to follow, or language common, and in this case he is joint of rules to follow are for publishing pages Web or HTML. The hypertext talks about to text common with some own attributes of the pages in Internet, as they are it the connections. Therefore HTTP is a set of decided rules to transfer text with own attributes of the Internet. Quite simple.
This protocol operates through requests and answers, between a “client” and a “servant”. The client for the users is the navigating Web, used to sail by the network like Internet Explorer, and the servant is that one where the pages of Internet are stored (those that they publish information in the Internet engage these servants to store their information, in such a way that the users or visits can accede to the same from their computers of remote way).
In order to know that to information this at a certain time accesando our navigator, he is enough simply with observing the “bar of navigation”, in the part of above of our screen, right after the tools of the navigator. The information that follows “HTTP” denominates URI (Uniform Resouce Identifier), more known like URL, which is not more than the direction than we are visiting. Generally these directions begin with www, that means “World Wide Web”, but exist many other possible extensions.
Now that or we know this, if we are observant we will ask because when we visited a bank or we realised a purchase by Internet this heading of directions changes “htpps”, and along with this generally alerts us to a message that we are acceding to a safe site or section. The answer is that this headed for the directions https indicates our navigator to him who uses additional encryption to protect the information that is being transferred, which especially is indicated for the transactions in line.
To know what is to HTTP and all the information that follows this attribute when we visited pages Web not only is a peculiar data, but also that helps us to protect our privacy. When we realise purchases or transactions in line where our personal information becomes jumbled, we must watch our bar of directions and always look for https along with the correct name of the site or institution that we visited. It is a crime quite common trying to imitate pages of banks and similars so that the people enter their personal information, but with something of basic knowledge this is easy to avoid.
