    Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is the secure version of HTTP, the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are connected to. The 'S' at the end of HTTPS stands for 'Secure'. It means all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted.

    Following are some of the disadvantages:

    A web request with HTTPS is slower and that often results in slow page loading
    Pages with HTTPS can never be cached is a shared cache.
    Some proxy serves or firewall systems do not allow access to sites with HTTPS.
    Using HTTPS encryption is often expensive as the certificate often costs heavily. However, it varies from one administrator to another.

    Yes: encrypting any of the many Network Protocols (including HTTP) will be somewhat more computationally intensive (and thus use more Energy (physics) and thus be less "green") than not. Most people believe the Network Security and Privacy considerations outweigh these other considerations.
