[domain] FQDN domain name pointing to the instance where this script is run
[email] Email address where Let's Encrypt will send notifications when the SSL certificate is expiring

Connect to your instance using SSH
Run the following command in the terminal. This will download the script and set up Let's Encrypt.

Functions - in order - that the script does:
