    There is no difference between www. and only website name. Both should would for the user, pick one and redirect to it from the other.

    You must use http:// to visit all websites, your browsers deals with that so you don't have to type it in. https:// is the secure layer, the traffic is encrypted using an SSL certificate.

    WWW in the beginning indicates that it is a website and it uses the HTTP protocol. It`s no need for using WWW - world wide web, since http ( Hypertext Transfer Protocol) is used.

    Hi,
    http:// is system for transmitting and receiving a information across the internet. https:// is work same as http:// but it provides bidirectional encryption of communication between a client and server which protects against eavesdropping and tampering with and/or forging the contents of the communication.

    https is a safety layer which keeps the website information safe. Mostly payment gateways and website related to monetary transactions use https.

    Hi
    I think
    Most websites come in a certain format, mostly it is www.anything.com.The Word WWW Stands for World Wide Web. The word at the end identifies the site as commercial, the word in the middle is the domain name, and the WWW in the beginning indicates that it is a website and it uses the HTTP protocol.
    "HTTP" Stands for Hyper Text Transform Protocol and is transmitted over the wire via PORT 80(TCP).
    "https" is more secure because the 's' in https stands for "secured"

    1. HTTP is the protocol used to transfer data to and from the website.
    2. WWW is the identifier that indicates that it is a web site and it uses the HTTP protocol.

    There is no such difference between these two. this is very common issue of many sites and the common question of many users..

    Example:

    example.com
    www.example.com

    http://example.com - is used with all the websites
    https://www.example.com - is the secure layer, the traffic is encrypted using an SSL certificate.

    HTTPS means that you tunnel the HTTP protocol over TLS/SSL which encrypts the HTTP payload. So the benefit is that HTTP requests and responses are transmitted securely over the wire, e.g. your Internet Service Provider does not know what you're doing.

    Http is commonly used to access html webpages.

    Https is used in log-in pages for banking, corporate log ins, forms and other applications in which data needs to be secure.

    The www was originally intended to identify different computers hosting the same site but is was subsequently determined that those situations can be handled without needing a special field for it and so the www on the front of domain names now servers no purpose whatsoever.
