Lets the fight begin (HTTP Vs HTTPS). What are HTTP and HTTPS? HTTP stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol. Meanwhile, HTTPS is the secure version of HTTP where the S refers to secure. What does it mean? It means that your connection using HTTPS is encrypted and secured.
Which is better for the website?
Google had announced that it will mark website without HTTPS with a warning and insecure mark. Getting an insecure warning may reduce the user experience and feeling of safety when visiting your website. Furthermore, if your website is offering an online payment, it may affect the user`s trust. Therefore, it is best to change to HTTPS if your website is still using an HTTP protocol.
