How web works?

If you enter the URL http://www.qualitypointtech.com/index.html in your browser.
The browser broke the URL into three parts:

1. The protocol (“http”)
2. The server name (“www.qualitypointtech.com”)
3. The file name (“index.html”)

• The browser communicated with a name server to translate the server name (www.qualitypointtech.com) into IP Address,which it uses to connect to the server machine.

• The browser then formed a connection to the server at that IP address on port 80

• Following the HTTP protocol, the browser sent a GET request to the server, asking for the file “http://www.qualitypointtech.com/index.html

• The server then fetches the page named index.html and sends it to your browser.The browser read the HTML tags and formatted the page onto your screen.
