Please explain me the client.send('GET /index.html HTTP/1.1\r\nHost: {}.{}\r\n\r\n'.format(sld, tld)) line in first code.
Thanks bro for this code. It will help me.

@saif017

This is an example of HTTP requests. The string will be processed to become:
GET /index.html HTTP/1.1
HOST: integralist.co.uk

This is a simplified way of requesting the page index.html from integralist.co.uk, using the http 1.1 protocol.
Check this out for more examples.

The socket will start listening on the port for incoming tcp connection requests, server.accept() will finish executing once it establishes a new connection with a client
