Hi @mdabney918

checking your domain there is an interesting redirect ( )

It this a redirect of your provider? has a valid Letsencrypt certificate:
expires in 51 days - 1 entry

Is there an option to remove that redirect? But I see, you don't use a control panel.

I don’t know what that redirect is, unless it is something from the 3rd party who hosts our external website. Everything else is in house.

It blocks the /.well-known/acme-challenge subdirectory. So you can't use http-01 validation.

Is it possible to use dns-01 validation?

Or ask the 3rd party why why there is a redirect.
