This may be a basic and repeated question.
But still it is not clear to me as it is mentioned in different way in different places.
Atleast i want to know from the exam point of view, whether HTTP is connectionless or connection based?

HTTP/HTTPS is connection-based.

HTTP is a connection based .It tries to maintain previos connection
it allows the client to reuse the same TCP connection (persistent connections) again and again when talking to the same server.
