These are starting to look like homework questions.

Which do you think would be better? Run some searches at Google and read up on what those terms mean if you haven't studied them, and then consider how their differences would affect performance.

What is the essential difference between HTTP over SSL (HTTPS) and TCP/IP over SSL? Can you think of an example of TCP/IP over SSL?

There are factors that you haven't mentioned that might affect performance. Many general statements like X is more performant than Y rarely hold in all cases.

That's like asking what's faster: using a car or using a wheel? (Hint: typically the former uses the latter.)
