DNS problem: SERVFAIL looking up A for

Hello,

This Error appears when i tried to use certbot --webroot and said that can’t reach the A record for my hostname lakkini.com and www.lakkini.com.

On the other side, i used an A record for lakkini.com and a CNAME for www and when I’m pinging or tape my hostname in google the website will respond normally.

what the problem with my DNS ?

ps: i use Digitalocean DNS.

Regards.

Hey friend,

It looks like you’ve very recently changed your nameservers. This article is a good read on what to expect after making that change:

The short version is, you can expect it to take as much as 48 hours for remote DNS servers (not our DNS servers, but the various DNS resolvers out there) to pick up on the change.
