What are reasons, that we have to add 2 versions of same domain to Google Webmasters:

http and https ?

as they refer to same domain, we have extra headache to have 2 items instead of 1.

Why? Is there any workaround?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Google treats HTTP and HTTPS as different sites because they are different URLs, and as such, they are capable of serving different content over each URL.

If you have no real need to retain the HTTP version of your site, then the sensible thing would be to redirect all traffic from the HTTP version to HTTPS.
