The World Wide Web or WWW (pronounced dub-dub-dub) for short is the name used to represent an Internet-based service in which Web agents or clients (a.k.a Web Browsers) communicate with Web servers utilizing HTTP request and response messages. To initiate the process, a Web browser sends an HTTP request to a Web server; usually the request is for an HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) file located on the Web server. If the Web server locates the file it returns the contents of the HTML file in the body of an HTTP response message addressed to the Web browser on the device where the request was initiated.
These technologies can be organized into three catageories, client-side technologies - related-to or processed-in a Web browser, server-side technologies - related-to or processed-in a Web Server, and data communications technologies - related-to or processed-by an http service.
This section consists of numerous tutorials all realated to the creation and distribution of content via the HTTP protocol.
