HTTPS showing not secure with NGINX (DigitalOcean Droplet)

My domain is:

I ran this command: certbot renew --dry-run

It produced this output: Attempting to renew cert ( from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/ produced an unexpected error: Requesting Network is unreachable. Skipping.

I ran this command: curl -v

It produced this output:

  • Trying…
  • Connected to ( port 443 (#0)
  • ALPN, offering h2
  • ALPN, offering http/1.1
  • successfully set certificate verify locations:

The operating system my web server runs on is: Ubuntu

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: DigitalOcean

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): no

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): certbot 0.28.0

PS: It was working two days ago with no problem for a month nearly… I don’t know what the problem is.

I found out that my original domain ( is also down, when I run the following command:
certbot --nginx -d
I get the following error:
Type: unauthorized
Detail: Invalid response from

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.

Hi @haitham

there is a check of your domain, 2 hours old -

Host T IP-Address is auth. ∑ Queries ∑ Timeout Name Error yes 1 0 Name Error yes 1 0

There is no ip address defined. So you can't use http-01 validation.

And your main domain shows a GoDaddy parking page.

Hello @JuergenAuer, thanks for your reply.

I can’t get it since on DigitalOcean my domain redirects directly to my ip:


That's not a public visible entry. And your name server is, that's Godaddy.

There you have to create an A-entry.

Your ip address is from DigitalOcean.

Host T IP-Address is auth. ∑ Queries ∑ Timeout A
Santa Clara/California/United States (US) - DigitalOcean, LLC No Hostname found yes

But that doesn't help if you use another name server without the correct A record.

I’m sorry but I’m really new to all of this and I’m totally lost, if you can please help me with specific steps I would be grateful
