http, Hyper Text Transfer Protocol, that is looking for code on a server. If you hit F12 you will see the HTML, Hypertext Markup Language. That is what http is translating, for whatever page you are on. FTP is a file transfer protocol, hence FTP, so it is looking for files hosted on a server that a web page points to.


So for just going to a website you type in http:// and then a URL and the http looks for and translates the HTML code, which is really a programming language on how text, images, and other elements are to be displayed, into what the programmer wanted you to see.


To go to a FTP site you can use a program that will just show the files or you can type in ftp:// and an address. This will normally show you a list of files and folders on the site and allow you to download or upload.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
