I would recommend following the steps here on how to secure an Apache webserver with Let’s Encrypt on Ubuntu 18.04, it exactly matches your current setup:


Also as Matt mentioned, your domain name needs to be pointed to the server IP in order for Let’s Encrypt to be able to validate your domain.

Hope that this helps!

Let's Encrypt is a Certificate Authority (CA) that provides an easy way to obtain and install free TLS/SSL certificates, thereby enabling encrypted HTTPS on web servers. In this tutorial, you will use Certbot to obtain a free SSL certificate for Apache on Ubuntu 18.04 and set up your certificate to renew automatically.
