Once you’ve installed the site on BlueHost if it wasn’t set up with the SSL certificate you can update the URL using the Really Simple SSL plugin from the repository here:

Really Simple SSL

The plugin will work with your SSL certificate to ensure anyone visiting the site will have the padlock icon next to your URL which confirms the site is secure and using https.

For setting up this site we will be using the Astra theme found here:
