by William Kenny
To understand the need to switch to HTTPS, it is first necessary to understand the difference between standard HTTP and HTTPS.
HTTP stands for hypertext transfer protocol, a protocol that defines how information is exchanged between a client (browser) and a web server.

The server processes the request and either returns the requested resource or takes some other action, such as generating a ‘not found’ error message. Read More
