If you're really just going to use it internally, the self-signed method
might be easier. _might_ - it is very easy with LetsEncrypt too.

LetsEncrypt uses domain-validation when issuing certificates. One
method is "http-01" which means you (ie. certbot) writing a string
accessible by your webserver which can then be read externally, i.e. by
LetsEncrypt. Another method is dns-01, similar idea but via DNS.
