The remote name could not be resolved: 'acme-v01.api.letsencrypt.org'

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better.
Im using Certify from http://certify.webprofusion.com

I ran this command:
When I try to set up a new contact It fails with the below error (see log below).

Is this an error with Letsencrypt or something in the program I’m using… or perhaps something else on my end?

I’ve added *letsencrypt.org to my trusted sites on the windows 2012 server.
I get this same error with letsencrypt-win-simple from: https://github.com/Lone-Coder/letsencrypt-win-simple

I have previously been able to set up the sites with letsencrypt-win-simple

Thank you for the help!

Certify produced this output:

This turned out to be a bad DNS server which failed to translate the letsencrypt domain name to the right ip address.
