3. Apply for an SSL certificate for the domain name. Here we can use a free certificate or purchase a paid certificate.

Second, simply apply for a temporary SSL certificate

The time considered here is limited. Lao Zuo will not apply for the SSL certificate to be reviewed, nor purchase the certificate, but use it directly“ Use SSL For Free tool to obtain Let's Encrypt free SSL certificate in 3 minutes "Go to apply for a Let's Encrypt certificate for the test domain name temporarily.
