This format exception is not because of your URL change from http:// to https://. This is because you have to make url connection without declare method. you have to specify using which method Get or Post you want to make connection with that URL. I give you brief idea about how you make connection. currently I am also use same connection. i don't have change code for http:// to https:// change url.

it looks like this. this will make connection.
