To preface, valhala.io has all certificates issued properly, even for the www version.
Issuing certificates to the www versions of electrolysissa.net and electrolysissa.com fail with NXDOMAIN A record. In my DNS Zone I have an A record pointing to the non www version with the site IP and then a CNAME for the www version. All 3 are setup this way and yet only valhala.io succeeds on both.
Using a DNS lookup on the www versions shows no errors.
I ran this command:
sudo certbot --apache -> 3,4 (for the www versions of electrolysissa)
It produced this output:

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): Apache HTTPD 2.4.6
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): CentOS 7, 3.10.0-957.10.1.el7.x86_64
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: https://ramnode.com
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): I am using cPanel DNS only FROM ramnode and not self hosted. The DNS entries are weird and I don’t know if they are right, but I haven’t changed them since I got it working the first time.
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
I can provide screenshots of all my DNS zones/configs as well as full ouput of letsencrypt.log if needed.
