Hi,
 
HTTP means Hyper Text Transport Protocol, this functions as sending and receiving files through internet.
 
HTTP includes all files TEXT, MP3, VIDEO etc.
 
We will go back to your primary questions with regards to the difference between HTTP and HTTPS.
 
What is the "S" means?
 
This is just all about SECURITY. 
 
Example of sites are:
 
 
When you notice that the website uses Https this means that the website is secure and you can trust them with regards to:
 
  • CREDIT CARD PASSWORD
  • INTERNET BANKING
  • FINANCIAL INFORMATION
 
You can guarantee there will be no third party that could access your personal information including your credit card.
 
Never give your personal information to the insecure webs
 
Never give your personal information to the insecure webs like http.
 
Online banking required https in order to give the full trust of their client with regards to there personal information.
 
Thanks,

The difference between the two, HTTP and HTTPS, is a follows.

  • First HTTP simply stands Hyper Text Transfer Protocol.
  • While HTTPS means the same thing it has an additional security part that makes it the Secure Hyper Text Transfer Protocol.

While HTTP will send all the data that is being transmitted as plain text so that anyone who comes across it can be able to read it, HTTPS on the other hand makes sure that everything that is being transmitted has been encrypted, and it will allow no one to read the data but only the authorized recipient of that data.

The user that gets the encrypted data has to have an authorized secret key that they will use to decrypt the data so that they can read it.
