	at java.base/java.net.URL.<init>(URL.java:488)
	at HTTPExample.main(HTTPExample.java:19)

java.net.MalformedURLException when thrown indicates that the URL is malformed i.e. either the protocol provided in the URL could not be found, spelled incorrectly or the String is not parsed correctly.

URL url = new URL("htpps://code2care.org");
HttpURLConnection httpURLConnection = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
Java MalformedURLException Unknown Protocol Exception
Java MalformedURLException Unknown Protocol Exception

As you can see in the above code snippet the protocol is not correctly spelled it should be https
