Certbot giving error

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:tathyashodh.monitoring

I ran this command:sudo certbot run --nginx --non-interactive --agree-tos -m myemail@gmail.com --redirect -d domainname

It produced this output:An unexpected error occurred:
The request message was malformed :: Error creating new order :: Name does not end in a public suffix

My web server is (include version):I was trying to create an VM instance on google cloud to use ODK aggregate for tathyashodh.monitoring and got this error below.

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Google Compute Engine

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

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):no

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):certbot 0.31.0

Hi @nidhiddn

this isn't a public visible domain name.

name "tathyashodh.monitoring" is private, public suffix is not defined

If you want a public trusted certificate, you need a public visible domain name with a worldwide unique domain name. "monitoring" isn't a correct public suffix.
