Currently it’s show “Registration is pending at Registrar” and we took support at Current hosting support advise given below:

I would advise you to set our MX Records and use our mail services.

For the purpose, you need to go over at your DNS zone provider: 3600 IN NS 3600 IN NS 3600 IN NS

and create MX Records for the domain to point to ours:

Hi there,

I can see that you are using Apache as your web server.

What you could do is to follow the steps here on how to get a free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate installed automatically for your domain:

You essentially need to do this only once and then certbot will automatically renew your certificate each time.

Hope that this helps!



Hi Mammaspizza,

When visiting your site, the browser showed me that your certificate is expired, is that the problem you are concerning about? Actually, after your purchasing SSL certificate, an extra validation is needed, which turns out to be like adding a TXT or CNAME record to your domain name, or receiving an email then confirm the domain is yours. If it is convenient, please show us the record you got, otherwise we cannot help with you.
