    Use of HTTP vs HTTPS (secured HTTP) is determined by the owner of the service.

    Unless the person that owns the service has a HTTPS endpoint, you'll be stuck running on HTTP.

    Normally when you make a request a HTTP endpoint, it'll default to port 80 whereas HTTPS endpoints default to port 443.

    From your URL above, it looks like the owner of opened up port 8063 and used that port to listen for HTTP requests. If you can find if and where they have a HTTPS port, then that should work.

    You may want to to just try which will use port 443 which is equivalent to For testing, some people like to use port 8443 too (8080 for http), so you can try

    TL;DR - it's up to the service owner to enable/support an HTTPS endpoint. Find that endpoint and you'll be good.
