The first thing you will need to do is purchase a ssl certificate if you haven't already done so. You may be able to buy one through your host, and they should be able to assist with the installation. Once this is in place then you can use/write a 301 redirect via a .htacess file with this it will redirect from http to https. Note there is no written steps as it is server related and not directly related to the program.

Is it possible to have an example of the lines of code that I need to add to the .htacess file.

Thank you very much for the help.

Have you contacted your host about this?
They may be able to do it for you.
My host (JustHost) set it up for free.
It uses Let's Encrypt
