Let's Encrypt certificate expired 2 days ago

Hello, my TLS/SSL certificate expired two days ago as I couldn’t renew it in time. The netlify domain of my site is papercuts.netlify.app.

I would appreciate any help!

**papercuts.ml doesn't appear to be served by Netlify**

We can’t renew your Let’s Encrypt certificate automatically until the issue is resolved. Check our [troubleshooting guide](https://docs.netlify.com/domains-https/troubleshooting-tips/#certificates-and-https) for more information on how to fix the problem, and then renew the certificate.

Hi @Pola ,

Thanks for reaching out!

I do see you have a DNS Zone setup here:

However, it appears that the DNS Zone is inactive:

The last line, Received 99 bytes , shows the name server that answered the above query is d.nic.ml and not a Netlify name server mentioned here. This is mentioned in our Support Guide: How to detect and fix inactive Netlify DNS zones.
