What is HTTPS (SSL encryption) and Why it is Important?

HTTP(S) stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure. HTTPS is the secure version of HTTP. Compared to HTTP, HTTPS-enabled websites open on an encrypted connection. When a user/visitor opens an HTTPS-enabled webpage, the communication between its browser and the website is encrypted and secure. Data packets are encrypted in HTTPS, and it secures the visitor/users' sensitive and confidential information. It makes the website safe from hacking. This is the major reason that the most webmasters prefer HTTPS encryption instead of non-encrypted HTTP for their websites.

    Search engines prefer HTTPS encrypted website instead of normal HTTP. This simply means that the HTTPS-enabled websites get more advantage in the search engine rankings. It helps to make SEO even more effective.

  • No Security Warning on the Browsers:

    From January 2017, Google Chrome 56 and later versions have begun to flag up websites which collect data like passwords or credit card information on a non-secure HTTP version. While opening any such webpage users receives the warning of "This page is not secure". But if the page is SSL encrypted and HTTPS enabled, then there will be no such warning on the browsers.
