Hi @varun98

there is a check of your domain, ~~30 minutes old -

No certificate. And a lot of timeouts.

If you want to use http validation, a working port 80 is required.

Hi @JuergenAuer I checked the above domain through telnet command also there is a working port 80 but still it’s throwing validation status error with no status code can you please help?
image please have a look at this.

That’s only internal. Every online tool must see your port 80, not a timeout.

Firewall, wrong router, something else.

But i could acces it from my local desktop also even you can try the same you can also get connected I think it is open to public. can you check?

Use the online tool to check your domain. Grade T -> your site isn’t visible, Letsencrypt can’t check it.

which online tool did you check through sorry to bother you but this will be the last
