SSL certificate - Contabo VPS Windows Server 2012

I am new user. I would like to install a ssl certificate. I have purchased domain already but not pointing to my VPS server. I am running my software using private IP.

I want to point my domain to VPS server as well as SSL certificate installation. Both activity I would like to do parallelly.

I need support.

VPS server provider:
operating system: Windows Server 2012 Datacenter Edition (64 bit) [VPS L]

With the added notion that while Certbot, which is recommended on that page, does work on Windows, other ACME clients specifically designed and build for Windows might be a better option. See the link to the list of ACME clients on the documentation page shown above by Rudy.
