Hi Friend,

Differences:

1)HTTP is hyper text transfer protocol which is responsible for transmitting and receiving information across the Internet where as HTTPS is secure http, which is used exchanging confidential information with a server, which needs to be secured in order to prevent unauthorized access.

2) HTTP transmits normal data where as HTTPS transmits closed or encrypted data.

3) HTTP is for normal applications and HTTPS is mostly for banking or secure applications.

4) HTTP uses port 80 where as HTTPS uses port 443

5) HTTP is defined in RFC 2616 and HTTPS is defined in RFC 2817

Thanks
