Is there a possibility to get or use a SSL certificate in AWS Certificate Manager for a public IP instead of a domain name?
I need a SSL certificate for my EC2 server on AWS, but I don't want to register it under a domain name right now.

You can generate a self-signed certificate to be used with specific applications within your server and this will necessarily show as such to anyone using that service but should work fine for many applications.
I believe that certs signed by a CA need to use the DNS name, not the IP for a public certificate so that is what you have to use with AWS.
