How to point to port 80?

I configured A and AAAA recordings. If I call , everything works fine (with my non valid local certificate). But if i call it points to my ip address and I guess this is the problem. So where do I have to configure that the port 80 should be used?
Or are there any issues with Strato? My Server is hosted by Hetzner but the Domain was bought on strato.

My domain is:

I ran this command:

certbot --apache

It produced this output:

Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log

   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
   client. If you're using the webroot plugin, you should also verify
   that you are serving files from the webroot path you provided.

My web server is (include version):

Server version: Apache/2.4.29 (Ubuntu)
Server built:   2019-09-16T12:58:48

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
Ubuntu 18.04

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
Server is hosted by Hetzner, Domain was bought by Strato.

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
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

Hi @meteoDaniel

checking your domain that doesn't work -

Host T IP-Address is auth. ∑ Queries ∑ Timeout A Falkenstein/Saxony/Germany (DE) - Hetzner Online GmbH Hostname: yes 1 0
AAAA ::ffff: Falkenstein/Saxony/Germany (DE) - Hetzner Online GmbH yes Name Error yes 1 0 A Falkenstein/Saxony/Germany (DE) - Hetzner Online GmbH No Hostname found no

The is your old ip address.

But the old answers, the new not:

Domainname Http-Status redirect Sec. G -2 1.127 V
ConnectFailure - Unable to connect to the remote server GZip used - 3138 / 10918 - 71,26 % 200 Html is minified: 223,78 % 0.063 H

So Letsencrypt can't connect your domain because there is no running webserver or a blocking firewall.

And your ipv6 is wrong. That's


not a public visible ipv6 address.


After using one of the several inspection tools I saw that the IP for the A record was wrong. Now everything works fine. Thanks for your support
