Autoacme Challenge Invalid: https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/acme/challenge

Hello, all

I’m trying to get certificate on my Windows PC. I have IIS 7.5 and using autoacme. I’m trying to get certificate for www.vns.com (I edited my hosts file: 127.0.0.1 www.vns.com)
But I got the error:

Where I was wrong? Thank you.

Hi @vns955

are you the domain owner of vns.com?

The ip is from South Korea:

Host T IP-Address is auth. ∑ Queries ∑ Timeout
vns.com A 27.255.79.15 Seoul/South Korea (KR) - EHOSTIDC No Hostname found yes 1 0
AAAA yes
www.vns.com A 27.255.79.15 Seoul/South Korea (KR) - EHOSTIDC No Hostname found yes 1 0
AAAA yes

And there is a click-redirect to a casino site.

You can create a certificate with that domain name, if you are the domain owner - worldwide and unique.

dnschecker.org says “Search Error or Records do not exist” for both vns.com and for www.vns.com and for the DNS address.
