What is https
Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is the secure version of HTTP, the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are connected to. The ‘S’ at the end of HTTPS stands for ‘Secure’. It means all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted. HTTPS/SSL is more secure in the browsing history.
The data transferred is encrypted so that it cannot be read by anyone except the recipient.
It is the same protocol you see and use when you visit sites like the banking or woocommerce such as Ebay or Amazon. This means that when you visit a site like https://wwwzedsoccer.com or this same one both the site and your information is more secured than when using http.
Google by factoring and giving in a small ranking to websites using https/ssl have encouraged millions of webmasters and administrator to upgrade their sites. Normally SSL certificates are sold by companies like Godaddy. Smaller websites may find it expensive but Lets Encrypt it project has been rolling out ssl certificates for free. This has resulted into millions of website of recently adopt the protocol so quickly.
