Protocol is a standard that is used to control the communication between two communicating media and for the data transfer between user and server. The communication between client and Internet server takes place through protocols.

There are 7 protocols that are commonly used on the net. The names of these protocols are HTTP -Hyper Text Transfer Protocol, POP3- Post Office Protocol3, SMTP-Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, FTP- File Transfer Protocol, TCP/ IP- Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol, DHCP- Dynamic Host Configuration Protocols, IMAP- Internet Message Access Protocol.

Transmission Control Protocol act as carrier between user and server and carries signal from the user to the server. Internet protocol is concerned with the final destination of data packets and carries data from server to the user.

File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is used to transfer files between two computers that are connected over the Internet. Thus file transfer between the client and server takes place through FTP. Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) is used for email transmissions between the servers.

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is used to obtain IP addresses from a DHCP server. By using Internet Message Access protocol (IMAP) the local client can access emails on remote server.
