Difference between GET and POST?

GET shows the submitted data as part of the URL, during POST this information is not shown as it’s encoded in the request.

GET can handle 2048 characters, POST has no such limitations.

GET permits only ASCII data, POST has no restrictions, binary data are also permitted.

Normally GET is used to retrieve data while POST to insert and update.
