Juergen has already pointed you to the docs. In general terms, Let’s Encrypt issues TLS server certificates.

To get a cert, though, you’ll need to either have a web server already, be able to simulate a web server (e.g., certbot or acme.sh in standalone mode), or have a suitable DNS provider and use DNS validation.
