How to do it…

  1. Create https-server.go, where we will define a handler that will just write Hello World! to an HTTP response stream for all HTTPS requests, as follows:
package mainimport (  "fmt"  "log"  "net/http")const (  CONN_HOST = "localhost"  CONN_PORT = "8443"  HTTPS_CERTIFICATE = "domain.crt"  DOMAIN_PRIVATE_KEY = "domain.key")func helloWorld(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {  fmt.Fprintf(w, "Hello World!")}func main() {  http.HandleFunc("/", helloWorld)  err := http.ListenAndServeTLS(CONN_HOST+":"+CONN_PORT,  HTTPS_CERTIFICATE, DOMAIN_PRIVATE_KEY, nil)  if err != nil   {    log.Fatal("error starting https server : ", err)    return  }}
  1. Run the program with the following command:
$ go run https-server.go
