Firstly you need an SSL Certificate from your hosting provider.

Secondly; modifying the standard Anchor .htaccess file to the following; will push all traffic through https instead of http.

Options -indexes

<IfModule mod_expires.c>
ExpiresActive On
ExpiresByType image/jpg "access plus 1 year"
ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access plus 1 year"
ExpiresByType image/gif "access plus 1 year"
ExpiresByType image/png "access plus 1 year"
ExpiresByType text/css "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/pdf "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType text/x-javascript "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/x-shockwave-flash "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/x-icon "access plus 1 year"
ExpiresDefault "access plus 1 year"

# 331 days
<FilesMatch ".(svg|woff|js)$">
Header set Cache-Control "max-age=28598400, public"

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*) http://www.%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule ^(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

    RewriteBase /

    # Allow any files or directories that exist to be displayed directly
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

    # Rewrite all other URLs to index.php/URL
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?/$1 [L]

<IfModule !mod_rewrite.c>
    ErrorDocument 404 index.php
Note: I have a few extra things in there to handle cache on a particular website.

You will get errors trying to serve http data over https, for example; if you have an image on your website, that comes from imgur, and it's http://imgur.com/imagename - it'll serve an error over https, so make sure website is delivering externally hosted assets over https too.
