The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is a web standard especially created to initiate and handle communications between servers and clients. HTTP request integration can be used to carry out certain actions, including GET and POST methods.

GET is one of the most used HTTP methods which enables users to request data from a certain source in a quick and easy manner. The requests generated using GET method can be cached and are stored in the browser history. These requests can also be bookmarked and come with length restrictions. GET method can only be used for requesting data and can't be altered. Due to these characteristics, GET requests are not utilized when dealing with confidential or sensitive data.

As compared to the POST method, GET is relatively less secure as data being sent is basically part of the URL. That's why it's stored in browser history as well as server logs in simple text. Since it is part of the URL which has a limit of 2048 characters, there's a restriction on the amount of data GET can pull.

On the other hand, POST method is used for sending data to service for creating or updating a resource. The data is sent using POST request is saved in the body of the HTTP request. The data sent through this request is never cached, and it doesn't get saved in the browser history. These requests can't be bookmarked and have no limitations on the length of data that can be sent.

Once the HTML request is saved in the cache or browser history, GET requests can't be resubmitted but can be executed again from the cache directly. However, with POST method browsers generally notify the user that data will need to be resubmitted to complete the request. Because of their public nature, GET requests can become an easy target for amateur hackers, while POST requests can't be easily compromised.

GET method can only contain ASCII characters, while binary data can be sent using the POST method. Due to its secure nature, POST method is used to send sensitive data such as passwords and PIN codes. That's why sometimes users have to fill the form once again when they're submitting their information through a web interface.

POST requests provide additional data in the message body from the user to the server. In comparison, GET requests to have all the needed data in the URL. HTML forms can utilize both of methods through method="POST" or method="GET" in the

element, however GET request is set as default. The method that's used determines the way form data will be submitted to the server.

HTTP Request (GET/POST) features:

  • Send Form Data

    GET, and POST methods are used to send form data from the client browser to the server for further processing of the request.

  • POST Method More Secure

    POST method doesn't cache or store data in the browser history and is relatively more secure compared to the data sent through GET method.

  • Data Limitation

    GET request sends data as a part of the URL while POST uses a message body. That's why GET is limited by URL character restriction, while POST method isn't.

  • GET Can be Re-executed

    Data sent with GET method can be re-executed without resubmission as it's stored in the cache or browser history of the device.
