Hypertext Transfer Protocol HTTP/1.0

This RFC 1945 was published in 1996.


The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application-level protocol with the lightness and speed necessary for distributed, collaborative, hypermedia information systems.
It is a generic, stateless, object-oriented protocol which can be used for many tasks, such as name servers and distributed object management systems, through extension of its request methods (commands).
A feature of HTTP is the typing of data representation, allowing systems to be built independently of the data being transferred.
