Others have pointed out resources, but at a very basic level, you'll need
a scriptable way to add TXT records for your domain. Plenty of ACMEbots
supply plugins for various cloud provider APIs, but if you're running
your own DNS server like I am, you may have roll your own plugin.

If you don't have this level of control over your DNS zone, you'll have
to bodge it with HTTP challenge and a stub web servers.

For wildcarded certs (valid for *, your only recourse is
use DNS challenges.
