http-01 challenge for webmail.recomsa.com.pa
Cleaning up challenges
Some challenges have failed.
The following errors were reported by the server:
Detail: During secondary validation: DNS problem: query timed out
looking up A for webmail.recomsa.com.pa
My web server is (include version):
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):
yes, I have root access
I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):
From the error it seems like a DNS resolve issue, but I've checked with several online DNS checkers and all resolve ok to my domain. I also noticed that there is "Planned Maitenance in Progress" with the status checker of your service, is it possible this is related to that?
pa to com.pa: No delegation NS records were detected in the parent zone (pa). This results in an NXDOMAIN response to a DS query (for DNSSEC), even if the parent servers are authoritative for the child.
com.pa to recomsa.com.pa: The following NS name(s) were found in the delegation NS RRset (i.e., in the com.pa zone), but not in the authoritative NS RRset: ns1.dopate.com
Which I'm not sure are your problem, but probably aren't helping anything. Are you sure your DNS servers (both ns1.dopate.com and ns2.dopate.com) are configured properly?
No, that's just that ACME v1 is going away, and not related to your issue.
I checked with the DNS service I have and they inform me the problem reported from DNSViz might be that their network is not in the range of the VPS provider I use. I have a domain name registered in Panama that points to a VPS service from the IONOS hosting provider. Is this a limitation for requesting an SSL certificate from LetsEncrypt? It worked ok back in January 2021.
I'm not quite sure what that means. The message from Let's Encrypt is that the DNS servers aren't responding to their queries, and the report from DNSViz is that your DNS delegation isn't consistent (what com.pa says your NS servers are doesn't line up with what the recomsa.com.pa zone says your NS servers are. I don't think any of that is related to your VPS, but to your DNS servers. Are you running your own DNS server on your VPS?
There shouldn't be any such limitations, as long as your nameservers are configured correctly and are returning results to Let's Encrypt when its system queries them.
I'm kind of in a limbo here, I managed to successfully request a certificate in January but the request again in April failed. The DNS service in Panama insists it's not their fault, is it possible that LetsEncrypt included the secondary check recently and SSL certificates don't get issue if the DNS and the host provider are not in the same geographical regions?
The only possible issue "geographical regions" might have is if your dns server has some sort of firewall that blocks traffic based on geographical regions, or if your dns server is only routable from certain regions. Let's Encrypt validates that your systems are reachable from several vantage points around the world, and has done so for over a year. If your DNS server can't get traffic from Let's Encrypt's servers then you won't be able to get a Let's Encrypt certificate. (Similarly, if traffic from other CAs can't get to your servers, they won't be able to validate you either, and if users can't get to your DNS servers then your users won't be able to get to you.)
While I don't think it's related to the error you're getting, your AAAA record for webmail.recomsa.com.pa is a link-local fe80:: address, not a globally-routable address, so I don't think an HTTP challenge could work anyway, even if Let's Encrypt could get to your DNS servers.
