IIS 8 and certificate

Last Modified: 2017-04-13
Hi Guys,
I publish my website on my IIs 8  server as a http.

Now I would like to publish it as https ..so for this I purchase certificate and assign it to my website.

Now my question is ...do I have to open port 443 or can I open any port to assign to my certificate lets say port 8082.
when I assigned my certificate to my server in the IIS I gave port 8082.
