How static web pages are processed?

The process begins when a user request for a static web page. The user can either type in the address of the page into the browser in the address bar or click on a link in the current page that specifies the next page to load.

In either case, the web browser builds a request for the webpage and sends it to the web server. This request is know as HTTP request and is formatted using Hyper Text Transfer Protocol(HTTP),  which lets the web server known which file is being requested and returns simple HTTP request.

What Happens when web server receives HTTP request?

When the web server receives the HTTP request, it fetches the requested web page from server and returns back content to the browser with HTTP response and returned response includes the HTML (HYPER TEXT MARKUP LANGUAGE) for displaying the requested page with simple html page which servers data to the browser and loads content with in seconds.


What happens when the browser receives http response?

When the browser receives the http response, it uses the html to format the page and display the page in the web browser. Then, the user can view the content. If the user requests another page, either by clicking a lint or entering another web address in the browsers address bar, the process begins again.

Incidentally, this process depends not only on the HTTP protocols but also on the Transmission control protocol ( TCP/IP) suite of protocols. The protocols in t he TCP/IP let two computers over the network.
