Certbot failed to authenticate some domains

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. crt.sh | 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.simorghleading.com

I ran this command: sudo ./init-certificate.sh

It produced this output: Enter domain name (eg. www.example.com): www.simorghleading.com
Existing data found. Continue and replace existing certificate? (y/N) y

Certbot failed to authenticate some domains (authenticator: standalone). The Certificate Authority reported these problems:
Domain: www.simorghleading.com
Type: dns
Detail: DNS problem: NXDOMAIN looking up A for www.simorghleading.com - check that a DNS record exists for this domain; DNS problem: NXDOMAIN looking up AAAA for www.simorghleading.com - check that a DNS record exists for this domain

Hint: The Certificate Authority failed to download the challenge files from the temporary standalone webserver started by Certbot on port 80. Ensure that the listed domains point to this machine and that it can accept inbound connections from the internet.

Some challenges have failed.
Ask for help or search for solutions at https://community.letsencrypt.org. See the logfile /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log or re-run Certbot with -v for more details.

After running 'docker-compose up --detach' you can share your proxy as: Configure Signal Proxy

My web server is (include version): 1 GB Memory / 1 Intel vCPU / 25 GB Disk

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Digitalocean

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Digitalocean

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): I do not know

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): I am Digitalocean Droplet Consul

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):

Check your dns records:

  • www.simorghleading.com and
  • simorghleading.com

are two different and separate domains for DNS. You must point both of them to the correct IP addresses (A and/or AAAA rercords).

NB: there is no A record on simorghleading.com either.
