Updating SSL Certificates with 'certbot'

I found the easiest way update certificates with certbot (on my server) is to temporarily stop apache / nginx and to run the following command. Once you have the congratulations line, you can restart your web services.

$ sudo systemctl stop nginx
$ sudo certbot certonly --standalone --email [EMAIL-ADDRESS] -d thebytes.net,www.thebytes.net,[ALL OTHER SUBDOMAINS]
