    HTTPS is a communications protocol for secure communication over a computer network, with especially wide deployment on the Internet. Technically, it is not a protocol in and of itself; rather, it is the result of simply layering the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) on top of the SSL or TLS protocol, thus adding the security capabilities of SSL/TLS to standard HTTP communications.

    Hi!

    HTTP or Hyper Text Transfer Protocol is the primary technology on the web that allows linking and browsing while HTTPS or Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure that primarily develop with secure and safe internet transaction.

    Hope it helps!

    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.

    HTTP and HTTPS, both are the transaction protocols used on the web. But todays most of the websites used the HTTPS because it provides safe and Secure internet connection. With HTTPS if anyone in between the sender and the recipient could open the message, they still could not understand it. Only the sender and the recipient, who know the "code" can decrypt (human readable form) the message. That's why most of the website uses HTTPS Instead of HTTP for security reasons.

    HTTPS, which stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure, makes it more difficult for hackers, the NSA, and others to track users. The protocol makes sure the data isn't being transmitted in plain-text format and is going in complicated form.

    In HTTP, URL begins with “HTTP”

    whereas URL starts with “https”

    HTTP uses port number 80 for communication and HTTPS uses 443

    HTTP is considered to be un-secure and HTTPS is secure

    HTTP Works at Application Layer and HTTPS works at Transport Layer

    In HTTP, Encryption is absent and Encryption is present in HTTPS as discussed above

    HTTP does not require any certificates and HTTPS needs SSL Certificates
