    You would have the same code but with https:// instead of http://

    For the SSL cert. you have to buy one or make one yourself...

    If you make one, people would get the unsecure SSL warning before visiting your site so they would leave....

    sea4me is exactly correct, there are a lot of vendors where you can get SSL and chances are if you buy hosting then your webhost offers them. If not you can get one from companies like GoDaddy.

    Make sure, though, that your coding is secure. Just because you're on an SSL connection doesn't mean people can't inject malicious code!
    Unless otherwise stated, any code posted is most likely untested and may contain syntax errors.
