    The main difference between http:// and https://
    FIRST, MANY PEOPLE ARE UNAWARE OF

    **The main difference between http:// and https:// is It’s all about keeping you secure**

    HTTP stands for HyperText Transport Protocol, Which is just a fancy way of saying it’s a protocol (a language, in a manner of speaking) for information to be passed back and forth between web servers and clients. The important thing is the letter S which makes the difference between HTTP and HTTPS.

    The S (big surprise) stands for “Secure”. If you visit a website or webpage, and look at the address in the web browser, it will likely begin with the following: http://.

    This means that the website is talking to your browser using the regular ‘unsecure’ language. In other words, it is possible for someone to “eavesdrop” on your computer’s conversation with the website. If you fill out a form on the website, someone might see the information you send to that site.

    This is why you never ever enter your credit card number in an http website! But if the web address begins with https://, that basically means your computer is talking to the website in a secure code that no one can eavesdrop on.

    You understand why this is so important, right?

    If a website ever asks you to enter your credit card information, you should automatically look to see if the web address begins with https://. If it doesn’t, there’s no way you’re going to enter sensitive information like a credit card number.

    PASS IT ON (You may save someone a lot of grief).

    Instead of HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP), this website uses HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS). Using HTTPS, the computers agree on a "code" between them, and then they scramble the messages using that "code" so that no one in between can read them. ... This tutorial will teach you about SSL, HTTP and HTTPS.

    With the latest buzz of Google Chrome 68 that marks websites as "Not Secure", HTTP has become the past and HTTPS is the future. SSL certificate is no longer a nice to have for a website but is a must have for each websites that goes online.

    HTTPS provides the secure connection between the browser and the Server, it provides the end to end encryption facility that prevents hacking.

    HTTPS is fully secured for the payment portal website and HTTP is not that much secured and it is a basic version.

    The information you submit on a https website is secure cause its encrypted. Now suppose hacker is sitting on browser and waiting for your submitted information. We wont be able to access it cause its encrypted. But if your information not encrypted they can steal the information. Most of the banks and transaction websites always have a strong encryption. Even on the server end. They encrypt the data.

    SSL certificate enables your http webistes to be secured with https.
    As per the recent Google algorithm, SEO ranking depends on whether your website is secured or no. SSL or https is mandatory for SEO purpose.
    Also, data is secured through encryption techniques in https websites.
