To provide the
https:// and green status bar a SSL Certificate is bought and used. This certificate is valid for a certain period (normally at a mimimum a year).
When the certificate expires users to the website no longer receive a green status bar, instead showing a alert.
These certificates need to be renewed and configured on the server again to achieve the green status bar again.
By either buying a new certificate for the domains, making sure to include all the required domains.
Newer options include free certificates from Let's Encrypt which will provide a actual signed certificate that can be used for local/internal and public sites.
Providers like Cloudflare have also started providing SSL certificates for any websites going through their proxy, making it easy to give any website HTTPS if there is no control over the actual web server.
