Getting an Error



My domain is

I have Hostgator hosting. I have already created CSR and private key on Hostgator. I am trying to get SSL certificate through zerossl. I am getting the following error once I try for verification:

Invalid response from " <head itemscope itemtype=“

Please guide.




I see you have another verification file here:

This is different than the URL in your error.

If you’ve obtained a certificate before, the authorization file(s) will have changed. You must upload the new authorization file(s) every time you renew the certificate.
