Hi @JamesMADE

there is a check of your domain ( https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=topshelf.website ):

There you see the problem. Only timeouts:

Your domain isn't visible.

If you want to use http-01 validation, an open port 80 and a running webserver is required.

Is there a running webserver? Or a firewall that blocks? Or a missing router forwarding?

I’m using an Apache server which is running.

Theres no firewalls or missing router.

Your site doesn't answer. Is it a home server? So your ISP blocks port 80?

If not, there must be a blocking instance. Or it's a wrong configuration (perhaps the wrong port).
