First launched on October 13, 1994 with Netscape 0.9, a cookie is just a HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol) header that includes text-only information stored on your PC. This information generally offers the site, route, lifetime, and price of the variable which you set.

Then this chain is preserved to apply for future research when the duration of this variable is the full time the consumer stays at your website. This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular user, or the page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next.
