What is HTTPs?

HTTPs is an advanced and secure version of HTTP. Why ? As it enables secure information by encrypting the entire communication with SSL. Also, it is a secure combination of SSL protocol and HTTP. Therefore, it gives you a much safer and authenticated identification of a server in comparison to HTTP which lays down certain rules and regulations for the browsers to communicate.
