http: HyperText Transfer Protocol, http is a protocol, not a "thing". I
assume you mean a web server? (http is not just used for web sites)

To get a page from a web server, you have to connect to it (look into
sockets programming for info on that) and then send it a request. The
request is just a bunch of data telling the server what page you want.
It will then send the response back as plain text.

Hope that pointed you in the right direction...
