HTTPS is well-known HTTP+SSL, a client and a server communicate to each other, but through an SSL, that encrypts and decrypts their requests and responses.

Basically SSL certificates encrypt the data that goes from your computer to the target website and back:

Your browser connects server (your target website) on a SSL port;

Server sends back its public key;the client(your browser) decides if it’s ok to proceed - it checks if the public key isnt expired, and if it is verified or "signed" by a trusted third party Certificate Authority, whose job is to verify server application for a digital SSL certificate;

If the client decides to trust the certificate, it sends his public key to the server;

Then the server creates the encrypted message, using client’s public key and server’s private key, and send the message back to the browser;

Client’s browser decrypts the message;

Now the client and the server has established secure connection.

Hello webmasters,

Can you show me pros and cons of Http vs. Https ? I know https is more secure but why it is then I didn't know.

If possible, plz show me what is the difference between Http vs. Https?

HTTPS: Secure HyperText Transport Protocol. The entry or https client, like a internet browser, also establishes a link with a host on a typical interface. But,https delivers an excess level of security as it uses SSL to go data. For all intents and purposes, HTTPS is HTTP, it's only the stable edition.

The most gap is that encrypted HTTPS will be the fundamental cost of security nowadays. You might have heard people advocating one to modify your web site to your HTTPS security protection. HTTP means hypertext transfer protocol.

HTTPS - here 's' stands for secure

Adding a SSL certificate to your http site will convert the website into https.

Why https is important?
The short answer to why your web site ought to use HTTPS rather than HTTP is "because Google prefers it." ...
once you visit a web site, your pc and net server communicate using a protocol known as HTTP. This stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol.
HTTPS is a way to encrypt information that you send between a browser and a web server. This protects your website?s users from "man-in-the-middle" attacks, where someone steals the information being sent to a website, like credit card information or logins.

HTTP stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol used to transfer data from a web server to a browser in order to allow users to view web pages.
HTTPS stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure. The major drawback of HTTP is the information that flows from server to browser is not encrypted, which means it can be easily stolen. HTTPS overcomes this issue by using an SSL (secure sockets layer) certificate, which helps to create a secure encrypted connection between the server and the browser.

The basic difference between HTTP and HTTPS is "S" letter, which stands for "Secure".

Also worth noting is that websites with SSL or HTTPS is considered more trustworthy by certain search engines, therefore, there could be a boost in SEO if you choose to add it to your website. Again, it's not mandatory for non-eCommerce websites, but it won't hurt either.

HTTP vs. ... The only difference between the two protocols is that HTTPS uses TLS (SSL) to encrypt normal HTTP requests and responses. As a result, HTTPS is far more secure than HTTP. A website that uses HTTP has http:// in its URL, while a website that uses HTTPS has https://

The most important difference between Http and Https is the level of security.

The S in the Https stands for security. So https are more secure than Http.

As Https are more secure therefore require domain validation and SSL Certification whereas Http doesn't require validation.
