Why https sites are slow to load?

Whenever I visit websites using https instead of http the site doesn't want to load as fast?

Is there something on my end causing the https sites to load slow or is it with the websites server?

https usually takes longer to connect than http since it's establishing a more secure connection.

It shouldn't take very much longer though and if it does it could be something with your browser or computers security settings or just a problem with the web server you're connecting too.
