1) In case of HTTP URL begins with “HTTP://” and for HTTPS connection it is “HTTPS://” 2) HTTP is unsecured on other hand HTTPS is secured. 3) HTTP uses port 80 for communication unlike HTTPS which uses port 443 4) No certificates required for validation in case of HTTP. HTTPS requires SSL Digital Certificate 5) No encryption in HTTP; Data encrypted before sending and receiving in HTTPS. Hope this has cleared the difference between HTTP and HTTPS.

Https is similar to http, but it is more secured, because data between server and client are automatic encrypted. This is advantage,but such web communication is a bitt slower.
