 +# WebSocket
 +
 +WebSocket is a communication protocol for [full-duplex](../​d/​duplex) communication channels over a single [TCP](../​t/​tcp) connection.
 +
 +WebSocket connections allow for real-time data transfer where the the server sends content to the browser continuously without additional client requests.
 +
 +Messages can be sent to be passed back and forth while keeping the connection open, allowing for two-way communication between the client and the server.
 +
 +Webbsockets use [TCP](../​t/​tcp) to communicate over [ports](../​p/​port) 80 for [HTTP](../​h/​http) ​ and 443 for [TLS](../​t/​tcp).
