NXDOMAIN looking for A


My domain is: www.level566.com

I ran this command: certbot certonly --standalone --preferred-challenges http --http-01-port 80 -d www.level566.com

It produced this output:
Domain: www.level566.com
Type: None
Detail: DNS problem: NXDOMAIN looking up A for wwwl.evel566.com

My web server is (include version):
Apache Ubunut 16.04 HAProxy

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): NO

Can anyone tell me what is wrong with my domain name that this keeps failing?


Notice the placement of the period (.) . You made a typo in your command (or possible a redirect somewhere).


OMG I have been messing with this off and on for days and a typo was the problem. How the heck have my eyes deceived me for so long? UGH! Thanks for replying.


Its’ not just you, visually the capital l “L” and the l dot “l.” do look alike.
