The protocol name (before the `://`) is used by your web browser to determine how it should communicate after connecting. HTTPS is a more secure way of communicating.

There are others, e.g.: ftp://mirror.genesisadaptive.com/ubuntu/ (where FTP is [was historically?] used for file browsing, downloading and uploading)
