Please share the correct domain name.

is that really necessary ? i dont want to publish it in a online forum if not absolutely needed.

domain is registered with a a-record
nslookup reveals the wan ip of my firewall so DNS is working.

what is the requirements for requesting a certificate ? firewall port 80 and port 443 points to a server that points to a docker container that has 80:80 and 443:443 routing.

do need to open other ports

and what thoes this mean

The acme-tiny client is trying to validate that the change it made to your site (creating a file that would be served via HTTP) is really visible from the Internet, by trying to download it for itself. This failed (maybe because the container didn’t have enough Internet access?) so acme-tiny concluded that something was broken because it thought that the certificate authority wouldn’t succeed in downloading this file either.

Alternatively, it could have failed for a legitimate reason such as a server misconfiguration (that is, the URL in question might not really work from the public Internet for some reason).
