    If you currently have a shared account, your best option is to contact your host regarding this matter.
    Basically, you'll need a dedicated IP and buy a SSL certificate then ask your host to install it for you.

    Good luck :)

    If you need a dedicated IP you will have to talk to your host. They should be able to help you with installing an SSL certificate for the site as well. GL!

    Do you have root on the server or did you only buy an account with a webhost ?

    yes I do. Is the "root" the main location of my entire site online?

    "root" is the superuser of the server. When you got root, this means you have full access to the server.
    If this is the case, you need to :
    1) Give a dedicated IP to your account
    2) Order a SSL certificate
    3) In your WHM, go to "Install a SSL Certificate" and follow the instructions that the SSL providers usually provide.

    Feel free to contact me on msn (see my profile) if I can help any further :)
