How to force https on web page

We had a question related to regarding secure connection answered in EE that made us place this question.   The EE said we can "...force https on web page through the serverside scripting or htacccess/webconfig...".

Please explain and if so, demonstrate.

Just to see if we understand, in order for force https, this has to be done at the server we want https?

We we're looking more to the possibility to secure the link to the any website without coding.  But reading al these entries, if we want a secure connection from our pc to the desired website, the said website HAS TO BE setup internally for https.  We cannot secure the connection without it.

Are we correct?

What padas has said
Curious...but what do you think trying to force all traffic through https is going to accomplish?
Between this current question and your previous one at https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28229376/Explanation-of-the-differences-in-secure-connection-between-the-site-provided.html.  It appears you are trying to get a specific answer to something but not really giving us any specifics and that is causing some confusion.  

I think to help you in more detail, you should let us know exactly what you are trying to achieve.

There is no specifics as to what we want to accomplish.  Basically is just acquiring knowledge.  With both question we pretty much clear.  Nevertheless, you advice on "...imply try adding the 's' in http to https..." is good if we want to see if security is available.

Thanx All!
