What ever we are doing here is that what's happening at the back end or something else I did not get the purpose of the course, or are we learning how to access website using terminal?

HTTP requests are communications sent from the browser (front end) to the server (back end).

This course is about learning how these communications work, and how you can use special developer tools to inspect what's going on "behind the curtain".
