Let’s answer the question what are the types of Web protocols?
First of all, protocols are the rules that describe how clients and servers communicate across a network. There are several different protocols used by the Internet.
The Internet uses several different protocols to communicate across the network. The protocols used currently were developed many years ago, and are similar in concept to the rules of diplomatic interaction that dictate who speaks first, who bows to whom and so forth.
There are different kind of web protocols to communicate between servers and clients.
- HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol)
- File Transfer Protocol
- Electronic Mail (E-mail) using SMTP or POP or IMAP
Why are the protocols required in networking?
Generally Internet protocol (IP), which uses a set of rules to send and receive a message at the internet address level. Same way it works for servers and client base as well. Without having protocol it won’t be possible to transfer data from one point to another.
So to resolve that particular issue we will use Web protocols.
