WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HTTP,FTP,TCP,WAP?EXPLAIN WITH DEFINITION?
FTP (File Transfer Protocol)
File Transfer Protocol, is a protocol through which internet users can upload files from their computers to a website or download files from a website to their PCs.FTP is the easiest way to transfer files between computers via the internet, and utilizes TCP, transmission control protocol, and IP, internet protocol, systems to perform uploading and downloading tasks.
WAP (Wireless Application Protocol)
It is a set of protocols for connecting cellular phones and other radio devices to the Internet.The Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) is an open, global specification that empowers mobile users with wireless devices to easily access and interact with information and services instantly.
TCP (Transmission Control Protocol)
TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a set of rules (protocol) used along with the Internet Protocol (IP) to send data in the form of message units between computers over the Internet. While IP takes care of handling the actual delivery of the data, TCP takes care of keeping track of the individual units of data (called packets) that a message is divided into for efficient routing through the Internet.
HTTP (Hypertext Transfer (or Transport) Protocol)
HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) is the set of rules for transferring files (text, graphic images, sound, video, and other multimedia files) on the World Wide Web. As soon as a Web user opens their Web browser, the user is indirectly making use of HTTP. HTTP is an application protocol that runs on top of the TCP/IP suite of protocols (the foundation protocols for the Internet).
