HTTP vs. HTTPS

HTTP, or hypertext transfer protocol, is the way a Web server communicates with browsers like Internet Explorer® and Mozilla Firefox®. HTTP lets visitors view a Website and send information back to the Web server.

HTTPS, hypertext transfer protocol secure, is HTTP through a secured connection. Communications through an HTTPS server are encrypted by a secure certificate known as an SSL. The encryption prevents third-parties from eavesdropping on communications to and from the server.

Only servers that have their own SSL can create HTTPS connections. A Website's visitor cannot encrypt the connection.

If you have a hosting account with an SSL encrypting its connection, you can automatically redirect visitors to the HTTPS version of your Website (more info).
