Not sure which strategy will be most convenient... Up to you.

Certificates must be renewed monthly from a cronjob (they expire in just
90 days), so the script for a new site should record the hostname
somewhere where the renew script can find it. Perhaps someone has
already created some letsencrypt glue for websites hosted in docker
