    Http, which stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol, is the processing of the information shared between the transmitter and the server without any encryption. In other words, your information that you will share with a website with http:// at the beginning of your address and your computer in general is not protected by security protocols and becomes open to external threats.

    So what is Https? Https, which stands for Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol, adds a security measure to send and receive all kinds of information between the transmitter and the server in encrypted form. This is the SSL Certificate. This SSL Certificate, which should definitely be included in banks, e-commerce sites offering similar online shopping services and similar websites, uses different encryption methods for sending and storing personal information written on the forms on the payment pages and card information to banks. Thus, it provides secure shopping opportunity on the internet. In other words, e-commerce sites with https:// hold SSL Certificate and guarantee card security when shopping on the Internet.
