To fix these errors, please make sure that your domain name was
entered correctly and the DNS A/AAAA record(s) for that domain
contain(s) the right IP address. Additionally, please check that
your computer has a publicly routable IP address and that no
firewalls are preventing the server from communicating with the

that you are serving files from the webroot path you provided.
My web server is: NGINX 1.14.0
The operating system my web server runs on is: Ubuntu 18.04
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Time4vps
I can login to a root shell on my machine: 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: certbot 0.31.0
I’ve looked at some other peoples solutions and have come up blank. here is a screenshot of my Nginx config and A name records.
Any help very appreciated.
It looks like that isn’t the active DNS setup.
time4vps.cloud uses these nameservers:
time4vps.cloud. 86286 NS ns1.serveriai.lt.
time4vps.cloud. 86286 NS ns2.serveriai.lt.
time4vps.cloud. 86286 NS ns3.serveriai.lt.
time4vps.cloud. 86286 NS ns4.serveriai.lt.
17068.l.time4vps.cloud isn’t a separate zone and isn’t delegated to
Either you aren’t accessing the right DNS control panel, or the delegation hasn’t been set up yet.
is their nameserver hostname and not
like they have it set as default to?
nsX.serveriai.lt are the nameservers for
time4vps.cloud. They could delegate
17068.l.time4vps.cloud to nsX.time4vps.com, but they haven’t.
I don’t know what control panel you’re using, or why it has the records it does.
Maybe they’re going to delegate
17068.l.time4vps.cloud to nsX.time4vps.com in the next few hours. Maybe it’s just wrong.
Ok guess I need to take it up with my provider then. Thanks a ton for the help you guys are great and responsive.
What kind of tools do you guys use for finding this info and troubleshooting?
I’m using the panel from their site btw.
sometimes these are standard programs (browser, nslookup, dig). Sometimes these are online tools - there is a list (pinned in #help ):
One thing is curious: You have a Letsencrypt certificate, 2 days old:
||CN=Let's Encrypt Authority X3, O=Let's Encrypt, C=US
||duplicate nr. 1
And now your server has the same ip address:
So NXDOMAIN shouldn't be a problem.
