I have hosted the application on AWS using free tier and now I want to have the application running securely using Amazon SSL certification but what I come to know that I have to use Route 53 which I think is not eligible for free.

Can it possible to use Amazon SSL certificate without spending any money?

I know how to configure with Let's Encrypt in nginx but not sure with Amazon SSL certificate.

You can only use certificates issued by Amazon Certificate Manager on Amazon services that are integrated with ACM: ELB, CloudFront, ElasticBeanstalk, API Gateway, and CloudFormation. CloudFormation can only leverage ACM certificates for the four services listed before it.



https://aws.amazon.com/free/ Read their documentation and contact AWS sales.

To try a thing, just do it. If you don't like the costs, delete it and pursue a less expensive option.
