Authorization fails

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: www.petureperfect.com

I ran this command: wacs.exe n,1,34(www.petureperfect.com)

It produced this output:

I have created a few certificates and this is the first to fail.

Hi @pzh20

that can’t work.

Checking your DNS there is no A- or AAAA - record ( https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=petureperfect.com ):

Host T IP-Address is auth. ∑ Queries ∑ Timeout
petureperfect.com A yes 2 0
AAAA yes
www.petureperfect.com Name Error yes 1 0

If you want to create a certificate, an A- or AAAA record

your domain name -> ip address of your server

is required.

Not only a local website with that domain name.

Thanks for this, it turns out my hosting company had a problem when registering this domain and set the dns incorrectly. So it was all their fault.

Thanks agani
