No valid IP address found

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:www.endoldpoliticsnow.org

I ran this command:# certbot --apache -d endoldpoliticsnow.org -d www.endoldpoliticsnow.org (as root)

It produced this output:Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
Plugins selected: Authenticator apache, Installer apache

Hi @rablampain

checking your domain you see: There is no valid ip address - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=endoldpoliticsnow.org

Host T IP-Address is auth. ∑ Queries ∑ Timeout
endoldpoliticsnow.org A yes 1 0
AAAA yes
www.endoldpoliticsnow.org A 139.162.23.155 Singapore//Singapore (SG) - LINODE Hostname: li865-155.members.linode.com yes 1 0
AAAA yes

Your www has one, your non-www not.

So you can't create a certificate using http validation with the non www domain name.

Add an A record with the same ip address of your www version. Then recheck the domain to see, if your non-www has an A-record.

Thank you for the fast reply.
How do I enter a “non-www”? Linode only accept “www” or “endoldpoliticsnow” (the domain name only). Is this correct for letsencrypt?

I don't know, that's provider-specific, I don't use Linode. May be the field is empty, may be "@" is used.

Share a screenshot of that menu.
