HTTP is stand for hypertext transfer protocol.
The major difference between http and https as below:

- no certification required
-

https Specifications:

- URL start with “https://”

Along with this i guess https works on server side and http on clients/users.

HTTP and HTTPS both are protocol that transmits the data over the internet. But the web address begins with HTTPS  ensures reasonable protection from eavesdroppers. Fund transaction oriented websites used to have HTTPS to secure their pages like online shopping and  payment gateway.

 Hello Friends,

HTTP stands for hyper text transfer protocol, which is important for safely broadcasting information over the worldwide Web (WWW) and HTTPS tends to Hypertext Transfer Protocol over Secure Socket Layer or HTTP over SSL.

HTTPS is the standard protocol used for securely transmitting data over the internet, in this case web pages. It addresses the issues with HTTP but at the same time it operates in exactly the same way, apart from the fact that all data is sent encrypted. When you visit a website with the https:// prefix you are telling the web server that you want to establish a secure communication path. HTTPS will use a different port (number 443) to ensure that all secure and non secure communications are kept separately.

Thanks and Regards
 Richard Smith

Http use for general sites and Https is the combination of Hypertext Transfer Protocol and SSL/TLS protocol. It is more secure option of sending request to server.
