Do Sessions require HTTPS?

This is a two part question... my previous post was surrounding an issue with Sessions, now I was told that it may be a server side issue so I contacted my host provider who said to me that sessions cookies REQUIRE https?? now this can't be valid because I've had no issues with sessions prior to this week - second part of this is, is there something I'm missing with maybe an updated versions? 

 

PS: yes, i'm new and simply trying to learn...

In general and by default https is not required to use sessions.  However, your host may have set session.cookie_secure to on in their PHP configuration which would make it so that https is required.
