:oops: can anyone tell me what is the difference between http:// and https://

 

the reason I ask this question is that I haves a basic wix website where I can drag and drop

 

different things i.e pictures music ect and its the only one I haves found I can learn

 

when I tried to put a html code on the website because it wasn't https and was http it wouldn't show

 

I am also sorry for my outburst sometime ago when I didn't get a reply to a topic I posted here ... that was

 

down to my private life being turned upside down and I took to drink and drugs and half the time I didn't

 

knows what I was saying and again I thank you for your help in the past and I also will apologise again

 

anyways I will say thank you for any replies I receives :D

HTTP and HTTPS: What do they do, and how are they different?
 

You click to check out at an online merchant. Suddenly your browser address bar says HTTPS instead of HTTP. What's going on? Is your credit card information safe?

 

Good news. Your information is safe. The website you are working with has made sure that no one can steal your information.

 

Instead of HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP), this website uses HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS).

 

Using HTTPS, the computers agree on a "code" between them, and then they scramble the messages using that "code" so that no one in between can read them. This keeps your information safe from hackers.

 

They use the "code" on a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), sometimes called Transport Layer Security (TLS) to send the information back and forth.
