Verify with online ssl checker otherwise you may need to review the ssl installation process

the ssl installation process

it is auto-installed, as i used the same server before when i went and clicked on 'Run Auto SSL' , and the SSL showed on the domain name on the search bar, but this time it didn't, i will contact the support and see!

I know from my experience with bluehost it can take a day to kick into action.

You can use Cloudflare and use their free SSL service. I think it's better than free SSL from the hosting provider.

Have you made changes to enforce https?

If not copy paste this in your htaccess file
Code:
#httacess ssl force
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

You should never miss with the htaccess file, all you need to do if you want to enforce https; just go to cPanel dashboard, scroll down to 'domains' then click on force to https, and that's it

Same thing :D :D
Using htaccess is never that hard, and it can help for many purposes
