This is most like the HTTP perfix except for that, is secured. It`s very hard to hack a page using that perfix. Some login pages are using it. Pages that require you to enter information about yourself (Real name, real adrdess etc.) use this almost every time.
Go into YouTube and click on "Login". (If you are not logged in, of course)
Notice the perfix? It`s the HTTPS one.
In some browsers, like in Mozilla Firefox, when it has an HTTPS perfix, a little lock icon appears in the progress bar. (The bar at the down side of your browser)
The syntax of the HTTPS perfix is very similiar to the regular one`s. You write it like: https://
Hope this was helpful!
