Shall we use test.com or any free Domain names for Testing Purpose? Shall we get public SSL certs for those domains?

I would like to test Citrix NetScaler Gateway URL with FAS and SSO in Citrix & Azure Cloud. For this I need one Domain name with public SSL Certificates.
Please suggest any Free Domain names which can used for 10 to 30 days over internet with above features.

Hi,

I would just use a sub domain of any domain you have available.

If your current domain were example.com, then use test.example.com (or any sub domain you like).

For free certs, use LetsEncrypt.

Given that a .com domain name costs about $US 10 for a year -- which is less than the cost of a decent lunch -- IMO it is imprudent to fiddle around with a "free" domain name over which you do not have complete control.  This is especially true for testing and troubleshooting purposes.
