Hello,

In case that you already have your SSL certificate issued you could follow the steps here on how to install an SSL certificate from a commercial certificate authority:

If you do not have a certificate yet, I could suggest using Let’s Encrypt together with certbot as it provides an automated way of installing the certificate and then of renewing it every 3 months automatically:
