Definition of Data Request

Clients can request specific data from files or databases that are kept on a website using the data request process.

These requests, which can be used to view, alter, or remove data stored on the web, are delivered by the client via an API (Application Programming Interface).

Many websites depend on data requests because they enable meaningful client interaction with the web page and its contents.

In order to give clients the greatest experience possible, professional developers must make sure that the API used to process these requests is secure, effective, and up to date.
