Hiya Daniel,

HTTP is just a protocol that defines how data is transferred between a server and client system. It is not a type of domain itself but rather a specification as to how information is handled from a domain. The Wikipedia article for HTTP has a huge wealth of information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypertext_Transfer_Protocol
