Auto restart Nginx

Since we used free LetsEncrypt SSL for the domain, you will need to auto restart Nginx. This can be done by adding a cronjon

You may also need to add cronjob for renewing SSL, this you can find at https://serverok.in/letsencrypt. In case of CentovaCast, SSL is managed by CentovaCast, so you need to worry about auto renewing SSL certificate.
