Prelim Validation error detail": "No valid IP addresses found for", "status": 400

My domain is:

I ran this command: owi_sslupdater from overseerr installer

It produced this output:

[] Authorizing...

My web server is (include version): nginx 1.18.0

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Windows 10 Pro v21H1

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 dont know

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): no

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): N/A I think (installer auto-ran a lot of things)

That really seems like a pretty self-explanatory error message--you haven't set up DNS records for this domain.

Unless i have misunderstood directions somewhere i have already done this. And after reading other topics here I confirmed I am using my public ip address in the dns input fields.

Looks like you're misunderstanding some directions somewhere then. The name doesn't have any A or AAAA records, which are required if you want anybody to be able to get to it. This is probably something you need to configure with your registrar and/or hosting provider, depending on how your domain is set up.
