HTTP is the transport protocol of HTML. Web servers speak HTTP.
|<cr> shows where to press the enter key; don't type <cr>. <domain> is the whatever.com that you are trying to reach. <file> is the file on that server e.g. index.htm.|
To learn more about http try:
telnet <domain> 80<cr> GET /<file> HTTP/1.0<cr> <cr>
In most cases today, because of virtual hosting, you will need to use HTTP/1.1 and respecify the domain via "host":
Web servers:telnet <domain> 80<cr> GET /<file> HTTP/1.1<cr> host: <domain> <cr>
