Server-side: 'POST' Method
Unlike the get method, values passed over post method are not shown in the URL, which is why this method is chosen for most login/signup fields on the web. Another advantage of this method is that users cannot do malicious things by manipulating the URL. However, one disadvantage that it has is that this high security can sometimes make it hard to debug a web application. When working on a web application it is always a good practice to passed the values through 'GET' method first and then use 'POST' method once you are sure everything is ok.
