    Following are some of the disadvantages:

    A web request with HTTPS is slower and that often results in slow page loading
    Pages with HTTPS can never be cached is a shared cache.
    Some proxy serves or firewall systems do not allow access to sites with HTTPS.
    Using HTTPS encryption is often expensive as the certificate often costs heavily. However, it varies from one administrator to another.

    Using HTTPS for a web request will always be slower than using HTTP. In particular, it will have significantly greater latency, because of the number of extra "handshake" packets that are necessary before the first byte of payload data is encoded and sent to the server.

    No, because https is the most secure layer and now search engines also recommend them.
