Hello there,

If you would like to use a free SSL Certificate like Let’s Encrypt you can check this tutorial:

You can follow this tutorial on how to install a third-party SSL certificate on your droplet.

Since you already have the SSL files you can jump on to the step on installing the SSL Certificate on the Web server (Apache or Nginx)
