How to Differentiate between Http and Https?


First of all, let’s define Http as Hypertext Transfer Protocol which is the protocol that transfers the data from the server to the computers. However, Https refers to Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure.

In the following few lines ilead will tackle both HTTPS and HTTPS in detail.

Let’s Firstly Define the HTTP

It’s the protocol that network administrators agreed upon to exchange the information they share online with the users.

So, What is Meant by HTTPS?

Actually, it does the same role of the HTTP but with an extra security layer as network administrators need to secure and encrypt the data they share. So, they use the HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure which relies on Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

How Does HTTPS Work?

The sender of the information and the receiver agreed upon a specific “code” which makes the transferred data appears as random characters that no one can decipher except the people who have the code; “the sender and the receiver only”.

So, whenever you request a web page and your browser addresses a bar that indicates HTTPS, it means that your information and data within this site is safe and that hackers will not be able to reach you easily.

Recently, the website’s owners tend to secure the data of their users via providing the HTTPS which guarantee safety and security.
