Networking Protocols

Networking protocols are sets of rules and conventions used for communication and data exchange between network devices and systems. They define the format, sequence, and error handling of messages transmitted over computer networks and enable devices to establish connections, exchange data, and perform network operations. Common networking protocols include TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol), HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), DNS (Domain Name System), DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol), and FTP (File Transfer Protocol).
