You can use certificate from Let'sEncrypt using Certbot and Nginx inside your EC2 instance.

Please refer this guide: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-secure-apache-with-let-s-encrypt-on-ubuntu-20-04.

Before doing this you have to make sure your instance has Public IP attached and is reachable publicly.
