Ohh No! Attacker.

This post is a brief explanation of what happens after https://www.holbertonschool.com is typed into a browser and sent.

https:holbertonschool.com, (//www. is a subdomain and is not necessary in this case,) is whats known as a Uniform Resource Locator (url). The url starts with Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (https) and ends with the Domain Name holbertonschool.com. HTTPS is the the secure version of the standard web transfer protocol (HTTP), adding a layer of security to the data in transit through a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol connection. The address is translated to Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol
