I'm going to take a leap here and assume you mean the "GET" portion of the https request.

In that case, yes and no. The server address portion of the URL is obviously not encrypted since it is used to set up the connection.

Everything else is encrypted in an HTTPS connection. But if you are using GET instead of POST then the user will still be able to cut and paste the URL out of the location bar, and you will probably not want to put confidential information in there that can be seen by anyone looking at the screen."
