What is hypertext

A text containing a link within it, is known as hypertext. If you click on a word on a webpage and it redirect you on a new page, it means you have clicked on a hypertext.

How HTTP works

When you enter a URL in your web browser to access any particular file or page, the protocol fetches information from the server and responses back that requested web page to the client. You need to write http before the address of the page.

For example: If you want to access any website like www.javatpoint.com then you write: http://www.javatpoint.com
