HTTPS (also called HTTP over SSL, and HTTP Secure) is a protocol for guarded communication over a computer web which is widely used on the Internet. HTTPS consists of conveyance over hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP), within a connection encrypted by Transport Layer Security or its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer.

This is the hypertext transfer protocol for disbursed, collaborative, and hypermedia information systems. HTTP is the foundation of data communication for the World Wide Web. HTTPS encryption is an extension of the standard HTTP protocol.

HTTPs.

In the scenario you should consider making use of https because https allows browsers and servers to sign, authenticate, and encrypt an http message. You additionally can also make use of ssh because the secure shell (ssh) protocol is used to establish a secure telnet session over a standard tcp/ ip connection. You should keep in mind that ssh is also used to run programs on remote systems, log in to other systems, and move files from one system to another whilst maintaining a strong, encrypted connection.
