Have you ever noticed how some websites have “http” in their URL while others have “https”? This post explains what HTTPS is and why your website will need it soon.
What is HTTPS?
HTTPS stands for Hypertext Transport Protocol Secure. HTTPS protects the integrity and confidentiality of website users’ data.
For example, when a user enters data into a form on a site in order to subscribe to updates or purchase a product, a secure site protects that user’s personal information and ensures that the user communicates with the authorized owner of the site.
