It might be a Netlify issue.
here's the error from the browser
The certificate is only valid for the following names: *,


seems like the certificate's DNS name is set to *

thanks for your replay
some users are able to access the site and some (like myself) not so much :slight_smile:

Seems to be a netlify issue, I would suggest contacting its support.

maybe the certificate is ok but it's a DNS issue on netlify?

If so @Nekit suggestion still applies.

Using connection from my work: everything seems to be fine, very peculiar.


some people reports that everything is ok and some not so much.

is there's a way to renew the certificate directly from here without Netlify as the middle man?

It looks like the cert is the "default" cert that's provided when a client doesn't specify a server name. Thus, as the report states, this site will only work with clients that support SNI--which should be any halfway-modern browser.

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

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):
