What does HTTP mean?

The remote server that hosts all website data is connected to through the HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP).
A protocol is a set of guidelines that specifies how emails should be transmitted over the Internet.
You can navigate between websites and site pages with it.

When you enter a website address into your web browser or use a search engine, HTTP creates a framework that allows the client (computer) and server to communicate with each other across the Internet in the same language.
It acts as a kind of translator between you and the Internet; it reads your request for a website, reads the code the server sends back, and then translates it into a webpage for you.
