Some challenges have failed

My domain is: ethahost.com or www.ethahost.com

I ran this command: certbot -v

It produced this output:

" Domain: ethahost.com
Type: connection
Detail: 81.241.40.58: Fetching http://ethahost.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/QWJdNkf1gV-jLgSoJ0Ah3A3sr0Zndu7M00hh1kiNxqA: Timeout during connect (likely firewall problem)

Hint: The Certificate Authority failed to verify the temporary nginx configuration changes made by Certbot. Ensure the listed domains point to this nginx server and that it is accessible from the internet.

I dont know what to do about this.

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: google

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): yes

I dont use a control panel to use my server
certbot is version 1.21.0

Hello @Ethaos_25 Welcome to the community!

From what I see your port 80 and 443 are filtered.

PORT    STATE    SERVICE
22/tcp  open     ssh
80/tcp  filtered http
443/tcp filtered https

I am not an expert on Google Hosting but based on the error message CertBot gave you I would start by checking your configured services on google cloud... Maybe this can help...

Is this a renewal OR a first time cert (for this server)?
