    What is the main difference between http and https?

    Hyper text transfer protocol serves as a request and response procedure that all agents on the internet follow, and hence the information can be shared easily and accurately between servers, which hold information, and clients, who are trying to access it. Http is commonly used to access html pages, though other resources can also be utilized as well through http.

    Could you explain the difference with https? The only thing i know about it is that it is Secure http.

    For a simple explanation, read HTTP Secure at Wikipedia.

    For the exact technical explanation, read RFC 2818: HTTP over TLS.
