No valid IP addresses found for subdomain

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:

jm-software.nl and iq-administration.jm-software.nl

I ran this command:

sudo certbot --nginx

It produced this output:

Which names would you like to activate HTTPS for?

Hi,

You spelled “administration” wrong. (In your nginx configuration)
Missed an “i”

Thank you

Hi @JanMarkD

yep, as @stevenzhu wrote: administraton doesn’t have an ip address, but the correct name has one

Host T IP-Address is auth. ∑ Queries ∑ Timeout
iq-administration.jm-software.nl A 51.91.99.54 Roubaix/Hauts-de-France/France (FR) - OVH SAS Hostname: 54.ip-51-91-99.eu yes 1 0
AAAA yes
www.iq-administration.jm-software.nl Name Error yes 1 0

Should only be an error in your local configuration.
