The HTTP POST method is used for submitting information (most often using HTML forms) to the server for processing. Content returned after posting may affect the webpage's persistent data, so you may get a web browser prompt asking to confirm the webpage's reload (which loads the content retrieved with the POST HTTP request).

POSTs typically have a payload.
