INTERNET: HTTP vs. HTTPS


  •  HTTP stands for HyperText Transfer Protocol, whereas, HTTPS is HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure.
  • HTTP transmits everything as plan text, while HTTPS provides encrypted communication, so that only the recipient can decrypt and read the information.  Basically, HTTPS is a combination of HTTP and SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). This SSL is that protocol which encrypts the data.
  • HTTP is fast and cheap, where HTTPS is slow and expensive.
  • As, HTTPS is safe it’s widely used during payment transactions or any sensitive transactions over the internet. On the other hand, HTTP is used most of the sites over the net, even this blogspot sites also use HTTP.
  • HTTP URLs starts with “http:// “ and use port 80 by default, while HTTPS URLs stars with “https:// “ and use port 443.
  • HTTP is unsafe from attacks like man-in-the-middle and eavesdropping, but HTTPS is secure from these sorts of attacks.
