Certificate Manager - What is meant by hostname that points back to my PBX?

When creating a let’s encrypt certificate from FreePBX GUI, I have to provide a certificate hostname “that points back to your PBX”.
What does pointing back to my PBX mean in that case, do I need a hostname that resolves to the external IP address of my NAT router with port 80 being forwarded to my PBX?

“* Certificate Host Name: The hostname you want to use for your certificate. This must be a fully qualified domain name that points back to your PBX.”

Yes. This is the same name you will use for the https url.
