node.js http or https server

not sure if my understanding of servers is correct but when it comes to creating servers with Node, is there any point in using http anymore when https is more secure?

I would try to use https. You can get a free certificate for your server here https://letsencrypt.org/

Of course it is important. If you are passing around user/pass and any other kind of private info, it can be read like a book

ok so I should always use https? I shouldn't bother creating a server with http becauise it's unsecure?
