You may want to use at the socket object. See chapter 6 on page 194 of the JavaScript Tools Guide CC.pdf (can be found from ExtendScript ToolKit via help menu).

Or you may want to use easier tools such as getUrl from Rorohiko:

Rorohiko: GetURLs.jsx - access HTTP content from InDesign ExtendScript

Or IDExtenso from InDiscripts

GitHub - indiscripts/IdExtenso: ExtendScript Framework for InDesign Ninjas

Both latter make accessing http url simplier.

Note: I've re-done GetURL ; this blog posts explains how to also support https. Only works in more recent versions...
