What is GET AND POST HTTP METHODS?
In the video, You can see Two HTTP methods are mentioned i.e. “GET” AND “POST” Methods. Now Both of this method is used to transfer data from client to server like if you entered username and password it can be sent by either using GET or POST method to server for authentication. The main difference between POST method and GET method is that GET carries a request parameter appended in URL string while POST carries request parameter in message body which makes it a more secure way of transferring username and password from client to server in HTTP protocol.
