Difference between HTTP Get & Post Requests

Difference between HTTP Get & Post requests:-
Conventionally, Get request is used for requesting static contents and Post request is used for requesting dynamic contents.

Technical Difference

  • In case of Get request, request data is sent as part of the header. Size of Http packet header is fixed. Hence, only limited amount of data can be sent as part of Get request.
  • In case of Post request, request data is sent as part of body. Size of Http packet body is unlimited. Hence, unlimited amount of data can be sent as part of Post request.
  • In case of Get request data is appended to the URL. Hence, it is visible in the address bar of the browser.
  • In case of Post request, request data is not shown in the address bar because it is sent separately in the URL.
  • In case of Get request, request data is sent as submitted by the user whereas in case of Post request, request data is sent in encrypted form.
