I am getting an error about the dns record but can query the name with nslookup
including from the server.

My domain is: connect.cbsnw.uk

I ran this command: sudo certbot

It produced this output:

  • The following errors were reported by the server:

    Domain: connect.cbwnw.uk
    Type: None
    Detail: DNS problem: NXDOMAIN looking up A for connect.cbwnw.uk -
    check that a DNS record exists for this domain

My web server is (include version): Apache2

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu Server 14.04

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: AWS

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): N/A

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

I think there’s a typo. The first quote uses cbSnw.uk, and the second one uses cbWnw.uk, which is not a registered domain (according to whois).

Edit: I made a mistake with one of the domains in this post!

great, well spotted thanks for your help
