I bought a shared hosting and added the websites to it but when I check with https, it didn't run. How can I add SSL for this shared hosting? or do i need to contact my hosting provider to do that?

What is the error when you visit your website using https? Which control panel your hosting provider actually use?

Any cpanel based hosting provider now provides free SSLs so just ask your provider to enable the SSL and if you are on a dedicated server where you have full root access then you just need to install SSL plugin if its not installed or if its installed just enable it.

- in the front of cpanel, is there Let's encrypt menu? if not looks like you are using AutoSSL by cpanel

- try delete htaccess for about 24 hours, sometime htaccess prevent the SSL proccess

If your hosting already providing SSL and you are able to visit https version then you just need to tweak it little bit.

For non-WordPress sites, create .htaccess file in root of your website folder and paste following code.
Code:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !on
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}
For WordPress sites, just use plugin named "Really Simple SSL" https://wordpress.org/plugins/really-simple-ssl

You can check here https://www.sslshopper.com/sslchecker.html
if your hosting company has provided you auto SSL because nowadays free DV SSL certificates are provided by the hosting providers which renew automatically in 3 months.

If your web hosting provider do not offer free SSL certificate, you can register it with Cloudflare. They offer SSL free of Cost.
1) You can Setup Cloudflare Free SSL Certificate for WordPress by registering your account with Cloudflare
2) Installing free CloudFlare Flexible SSL Plugin.
My website SSL is also registered with Cloudflare.

there is actually no excuse for a host not to offer free SSL in 2019 except to make extra money I would recommend looking for a host that does and is willing to help ypu

If you're on a cPanel platform, then just ask your hosting provider to enable SSL certificates to all your hosted domains under your account, it is just one click. You can then manage SSL's for domains in your cPanel -> Security -> SSL / TLS Status
