Unable to Renew SSL certificate

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=omega.sevabharat.org), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:
I ran this command:
sudo certbot renew --dry-run
It produced this output:
Failed authorization procedure. omega.sevabharat.org (tls-sni-01): urn:acme:error:dns :: DNS problem: NXDOMAIN looking up A for omega.sevabharat.org
My web server is (include version):
Apache/2.4.27 (Ubuntu)
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
Ubuntu 17.10(artful)
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): no

As the error states, your domain doesn’t exist in DNS.

You’ll need to point omega.sevabharat.org at an IP address in order for renewal to succeed.

Thanks, it used be public earlier but someone changed it to be Private.
after renewing the certificate, have restarted the Apache server.

Probably will have to wait for it apply.

Hi @sevabharat

now your domain has an ip address and a new certificate, created today:

CN=omega.sevabharat.org - 04.12.2018 - 04.03.2019

So it look's good.
