When it comes to Let’s Encrypt (CertBot), unlike commercial certificates, they must be renewed every 3 months (currently), which you’d need to do from the command line. Beyond that, they function and work just like a commercial SSL without the cost :-).

For overall management and renewal, I’d take a look at:

https://certbot.eff.org/docs/using.html#managing-certificates

That said, when visiting your site using HTTPS, I see an error currently:

ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED

Which would indicate and issue with the configuration or that Apache wasn’t restarted after the new changes were made for the SSL certificate.

I’d try running:

service apache2 restart

If that doesn’t work, I’d check the error logs for additional details on why it’s not working:

tail -20 /var/log/apache2/error.log

anyone?
