Hello, i'm using Apache Web Server 2.4 on a Windows 10 OS.
I want to access a third party cloud domain using an Apache Web Server i'm setting up on my local machine and i want to access it over https.
I was able to access localhost on https using a security certificate generated through OPENSSL. Am I right in understanding that i cannot do the same to access this third party website? (I've tried and am getting an error saying the site is not reachable)
Will I need to pay money to get a Security Certificate from a CA or are there any free options out there? All the free options i've seen seem to be for websites hosted by the applicant, not third party ones.

You can use "let's encrypt" for free. There are several topics about that in the forum.
