If your website is hosted with GoDaddy then this should be the right set of instructions:

Re: My website should be https not http

the title of your question suggests that you already did some configuration for HTTPS - either requested your web hosting provider to enable it for you or did some configuration yourself.

 

If not then it's really hard to provide a meaningful answer as the "how" depends on what technologies and providers you use.

 

If I step back - enabling HTTPS doesn't have to disable HTTP. You can have both options at the same time. If you don't want that, you need to configure a "redirect" so that your website always responds with HTTPS.

I've worked around (not only) SSL security for over 20 years in enterprises and startups. 

I am now running an HTTPS expiry management service KeyChest.net

Re: My website should be https not http

Can you share your domain name? 

 

In general, there are 2 steps (unless HTTPS is offered by your hosting provider):

1. obtaining a new certificate - you need to request a certificate from a Certificate Authority

2. install the certificate on your website - it means copying the certificate file to a certain place and updating the webserver
