Free external public Internet Pen test website

I have a public Internet portal but have not purchased a security Penetration
test tool or VA tool yet.

Is there any free public Internet website that I can run to direct towards my
portal to get an initial Pen test results for my hardening in advanced?

Ideally one that can VA Pen test not only for Http (ie Tcp 80) but for vulnerable
SSL as well & for various injections (SQL etc)

Is the above a reliable (ie it's not a malicious site) free pen test?

Does Nessus still offer free online scan (to a website) ?

Does metaspoilt & wireshark offer online scan too ?

It's best to hire a professional, many of us on EE are for hire:
You can also try soe free tools like XSS-me or SQl-Inject me:
Wireshark is not the tool you're looking for:

online service is not available and most of it due to licencing challenges but they offer remote driven scanning which can still be remote based and w/o s/w installation per is driven by web portal login by user and launch scan to target where most it is cloud based e.g.

Nessus Perimeter Service -
(Due to a change of Nessus Licensing the online Nessus service has been discontinued.)

Metasploit wise, not that I know there is an online version though but most probably we may consider looking at Amazon AWS's "Free Tier" and install Metasploit there and do note these are subjected to AWS AUP (includes descriptions of prohibited security violations and network abuse) and Authorisation

Qualys FreeScan service is another candidate and it includes other scan - you need to register and agreed on the service which include using their online service only to scan Site(s) owned by and registered to You.

Hackertarget also run such service @ with various means but limit user to run #number of scan per days based on your membership

What noboby has bothered to add is the fact that you get what you pay for.  The "free" tools are about as useful as two left shoes.Your best bet is with one of the EE experts.  After you spend many wasted hours playing with the free tools, I guarantee you will come to the same conclusion.

Thanks, but I don't have the budget as the actual security scanning team
is in progress of procuring a licence (which I heard may take 5-6 weeks).

Just found that Qualys don't accept IP address
btanExec ConsultantCommented:
Either use dynamic DNS to host temp your server IP to include in Qualys

...else have to use the free tools to run then for internal staging or even production (I advised not to if you are not savvy on it) server.. not public IP addresses

I've seen that link earlier;  most of the tools there like Nmap & Wireshark
are not suitable for Pen test like what Richrumble said above
