What are the differences between proxies of different protocol types?

1. HTTP proxy

An HTTP proxy is any proxy server that uses hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) to connect to a Web server or client (browser). Due to the widespread use of HTTP on the Internet, most proxies are HTTP proxies. HTTP connections interpret data more easily than SOCKS, so generally HTTP proxies are used for crawlers.


2. HTTPS (SSL) proxy

SSL(HTTPS) proxy: SSL or secure Sockets Layer is a security layer that is attached to HTTP to make it HTTPS. This layer adds security certificates for end-to-end encryption to prevent eavesdropping during data transmission. HTTPS proxies help you stay secure when you use a username and password for transactions or when you log on to a website.
