Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure


Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure is a secure version of the HTTP protocol used for transmitting data over the internet. HTTPS encrypts data that is sent between a web server and a web browser, making it much more difficult for third parties to intercept or access the data. HTTPS is important for protecting sensitive information, such as login credentials, credit card numbers, and other personal data. HTTPS is also important for SEO, as search engines give preference to secure websites over unsecured websites. HTTPS is now the standard for web security and is used by millions of websites around the world.
