When people think of the internet they tend to think mainly of the World Wide Web. However there are a number of different ways to access and retrieve information from the internet. These different types of internet connections are referred to as protocols.
Although you could use separate software to access different protocols, most different types of protocols can be easily accessed by using a normal web browser. According to the Online Library Learning Center these are main categories of protocols:
File retrieval protocols
This was one of the earliest ways of getting information from the internet, by viewing the list of files available on the serving computer. However there were no graphics and there was not always a description of the file's content. Specialist knowledge would be required to retrieve the particular information that you wanted.
File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
FTP allows users to transfer files from one computer to another. By using the FTP program, a user can log on to a computer at a remote location, browse through files and either download or upload files. Any type of file can be uploaded or downloaded using FTP, but it is only possible to view the file's name, not a description of its content. Internet users may come across FTP if they try to download software applications from the World Wide Web.
Unlike FTP, Gopher offers file description to make it easier for users to find whatever content they are looking for. The files are arranged on the remote computer in a hierarchal manner similar to that on your own computer's hard drive. This is no longer a widely used protocol.
Telnet is a protocol that requires specialist software. It allows you to connect to a remote computer as if you were using your own computer.

There are two types of protocols they are Internet Protocol and Transmission Control Protocol. In computers a protocol is basically a principle or standard which either controls or permits the connection, communication and transmission of data between two diverse computing endpoints. In basic language a protocol can be explained as the rules of leading the syntax, semantics and synchronization of contact.

Protocols can be put into practice either by hard ware or software, or even by a grouping of both. Mostly on the basic level a protocol classifies the performance of a hardware connection. The extensive use and development of communication protocols is a combined requirement to the internet. It is also one of the main suppliers to its power and success. Nearly all the internet communication protocols are illustrated in the RFC credentials of the Internet Engineering Task Force.

Internet protocols are set of a rule that governs an operation on the internet and communication over it. They are many types such as UDP, FTP, SMPT, HTTP and TCP/IP. Protocol in terms of the computing is a standard rules that governs or maintain the operations of the connections in the total network world, while transferring of the data can also be known as the set of rules that govern the synchronization ,syntax and semantic of communication between the two end points of the computing.
