HTTP(S) Service Introduction
With the HTTP(S) Connector you can send and receive SMS text messages through a single HTTP(S) command within your application or website.
You have access to all of the methods that are available within the Web Service to send and receive both free-to-receive and premium text messages.
The (S) function enables you to fully secure your message sending by taking advantage of our SSL encryption service. Our SMS Gateway uses Verisign to secure your HTTP connection with us.
You can use both POST and GET commands with the HTTP(S) Connector. The POST command is recommended as GET can display certain account and password details on the actual URL line.
