I’m having trouble getting a certificate issued because the DNS query for my domain is timing out. I’ve triple checked that my domain is fine, and resolvable everywhere I try except by letsencrypt.org. Is there a problem with the letsencrypt.org domain servers?
I’m using certbot 0.11.1 on Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS with Nginx 1.10.0.
$ sudo certbot certonly --webroot --webroot-path=/var/www/html -d www.0211.us Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log Starting new HTTPS connection (1): acme-v01.api.letsencrypt.org Obtaining a new certificate Performing the following challenges: http-01 challenge for www.0211.us Using the webroot path /var/www/html for all unmatched domains. Waiting for verification... Cleaning up challenges Failed authorization procedure. www.0211.us (http-01): urn:acme:error:connection :: The server could not connect to the client to verify the domain :: DNS problem: query timed out looking up A for www.0211.us IMPORTANT NOTES: - The following errors were reported by the server: Domain: www.0211.us Type: connection Detail: DNS problem: query timed out looking up A for www.0211.us
And now I’ve retried several times and I’m getting
There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new authz :: Too many invalid authorizations recently.`
