What are the drawbacks, if any, to using HTTPS vs. HTTP?

Is there any reason not to use https all the time? Why hasn’t it become the standard instead of http if it is more secure?

Encryption comes at the cost of some speed.Decrypting and encrypting takes time - not a lot, but it is a little slower. Also, there is additional cost and effort involved. HTTPS requires certificates, which must be kept updated, and you have to pay for SSL certificates.
