The POST method is commonly used when you want to send data to the server, especially when uploading files or submitting form data. When you upload a file, you're typically sending data to the server that needs to be processed and stored.

The HTTP POST method is designed for these purposes. It allows you to send a payload (such as form data or files) to a specific endpoint on the server for processing. In the context of file uploads, using POST is standard practice because it allows the server to expect a payload (the file) in the request body.

When you use POST, the data is sent in the request body rather than in the URL (as with GET requests), which makes it suitable for larger amounts of data or sensitive information. This is why POST is commonly used for file uploads and form submissions.
