Unable to verify challenge

Hello everyone,

I am experiencing for a first time an issue with lets encrypt on netlify.

I am receiving this error :

SniCertificate::CertificateNonvalidError: Unable to verify challenge for web-quotation-simulator.com: 34.102.136.180: Invalid response from http:// web-quotation-simulator.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/KpdVfi1_PuuItM-0fbk5gQgRnRxTZcfM_Y_BX2Rzf-g: "<!doctype html><meta name=“viewport” co"

We can’t renew your Let’s Encrypt certificate automatically until the issue is resolved. Check our troubleshooting guide for more information on how to fix the problem, and then renew the certificate.

Here is my netlify : magnificent-cassata-7f0624.netlify.app

As documented, www subdomain is set to primary domain and everything works well for it. But the main DN isn’t working.

Any thoughts ?

Thanks in advance !

Hey @alonsogiraldo

It would appear the DNS for web-quotation-simulator.com isn’t configured correctly.

% dig web-quotation-simulator.com A
web-quotation-simulator.com. 600 IN	A	34.102.136.180
web-quotation-simulator.com. 600 IN	A	75.2.60.5

The second record (listed above) is correct as per configure external DNS documentation. The first record is not. Remove the A record for 34.102.136.180 and this should resolve the issue.

Hello !

Yes it was that, Godaddy has DN record called “parked” which I forgot to remove.

Thank you, everything works well now
