hello,

 

I recently checked a websites URL. Once with HTTP, the other with HTTPS. Both for the same website and goes to the same page.

 

I found them with different IPs. One for example a Canadian IP, the other an Australian IP. the difference is just https.

 

my questions, does https dedicates a different IP?

 

thanks.

No. It indicates a secure site.

Thanks too much,
 
but why the ip is changing when typing for example: http://mysite.com  and https://mysite.com ??
 
and why the reason for this?
 
thanks

No idea. Why does it matter?

Just like you could choose, for example, to put subdomains on different IP addresses - e.g. www.mysite.com on one IP address and blog.mysite.com on a different IP address - so https gives you the opportunity to serve content from a different IP address to http.

 

You could put http and https on the same IP address, but you don't have to. In your case, it would appear that whoever set it up chose not to put them both on the same IP.

Because SSL certificates have to bind to an IP NOT a hostname.

 

AND HTTPS does NOT "secure a site (or server) " it will only secure the communication between a browser and the server by encrypting it.
