I’m a noob to web development so this is probably a simple question to most, but I’d like some clarity on this issue before I waste money.
In order to satisfy the requirements in the docs I have to connect to my EBS using a secure connection with valid SSL certificates. From my research there does not seem to be a free way to accomplish that so my questions are as follows:
- Do I need to register a domain for my EBS so I can get a certificate from an authority?
- If so, what is the cheapest way for me to get a domain name (that doesn’t need to be memorizable or pronouncable)
- Will a certificate from https://letsencrypt.org/ do or would I need to pay for that as well?
- Finally, is there a better way to fulfill that requirement that I’m not thinking of?
Note that I need two-way communication for my project so just using PubSub won’t do.
Thank you for taking your time and reading this
