What is HTTP?

HTTP is an application protocol for data exchange that relies on a request/response model. Due to its nature as the foundational protocol for the modern Internet, HTTP is the default communication protocol for cloud-native applications. HTTP is supported in virtually every language and development framework, and is simple and extensible.
