After installing an SSL certificate, a website connection with an “HTTPS ://” URL is established, which leads the web server to establish a secure connection with the web browser.
Browsers then inform visitors that the website is SSL-Secured, with the help of several visible trust indicators.
Benefits of SSL Certificate
- Encrypt website and secure communication between browser and server
- Protects user’s sensitive information
- Let’s users to complete a successful transaction without any risk of data loss
- Increases user’s trust and confidence
- Eliminates browser warning and alerts
- Boost up business conversation and helps to generate maximum revenue
- Increases Organization’s reputation over the internet
- Google also gives ranking benefits for SSL enable website
- Eliminates risk of phishing and other cyber attacks
- Available at lower cost and saves money by letting user to manage multiple website under single certificate

What is HTTP?
HTTP is the acronym for Hypertext Transfer Protocol.
HTTP has been the standard communication protocol pretty much since the internet was developed. All data that is sent, whether it’s a website sending data to a browser about how to display it or a browser sending a customer’s financial data back to a website to complete a transaction – and a whole range of communications in between – are sent via HTTP.
What is HTTPS?
HTTPS is really just HTTP with TLS (HTTP + TLS = HTTPS). When you see HTTPS in the address bar of your browser it means all communication with this website will be encrypted
benefits of HTTPS
- Maximize security of data & transactions on the web
- Encrypt Users sensitive or confidential information
- Turn your users into potential customers with trust
- Increase ROI
- Improve Search engine ranking
- Avoid ‘Not Secure’ warning in browsers
Writing something important?

I’ve already answered this question but question was asked in just little different way. So, rather than repeating the same, I’m providing you the link. Question was, “What are the advantages of running websites on HTTPs instead of the normal HTTP?” So, just go through this, and you will be able to know, the obvious advantage of using HTTPS like how it provides Authenticity, Confidentiality & Protection which is not possible over normal HTTP connection. I’m also keeping one more link of another question of which I’ve written an answer for, “What can happen when you are not using an HTTPS Protocol?” So, go through this one also, & you will be able to get a complete idea.
I hope it helps.
Website uses HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) have secure transfer.
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. This keeps your information safe from others. They use the “code” on a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), sometimes called Transport Layer Security (TLS) to send the information back and forth.
On the other hand HTTP:
The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application protocol for distributed, collaborative, hypermedia information systems. HTTP is the foundation of data communication for the World Wide Web. HTTP is the protocol to exchange or transfer hypertext.
Basically its a protocol for transferring hyper text ( different from normal text having links of other pages in text of articles) from client to server end, but in don’t have any security.
HTTP vs HTTPS
The extra “s” stands for “secure” and indicates a protected site.
The most important way to protect data exchange on a website is an SSL certificate, or “Secure Socket Layer.”
This type of network protocol allows for the secure transmission of data, and encrypts data that is exchanged between a website and its visitors.
Unauthorized users are unable to access this data which is especially important when querying sensitive user data such as passwords, email addresses or bank account information.
Hitting “forgot password” more than “login”?
