It may depend on the site itself that you are trying to make work but in simple terms just setup a binding from within IIS for that site and assign the certificate you would like to use.

Do you have IIS already installed and functioning as a web server?

Open IIS manager then on the left hand side you should see your organizational structure and sites that you currently have, click on the site you want to work with and then on the right hand side you should see "bindings".
If this is your only site you can simply add a binding like https, port 443 and pick your certificate.
You should then see a browse web site option when you close the binding window which should allow you to browser to the site.

You may have one self signed on the server if not you can generate one, if you want to have it validated so to loose the security warnings then you will need to purchase a certificate. If you are planning on running a public facing website you will definitely want to do this, if it is just for internal use or using webmail then you can probably live with the warnings.
