Why is my server configuration inconsistent?

I got a domain in GoDaddy and I am using DigitalOcean (DO) to deploy my webapp. I created a ssl certificate using letsencrypt and aparently everything is fine. When I run the ssl-test from it appears to be a problem with the server configuration (Warning: Inconsistent server configuration)

Why is my godaddy ip address not certified as my DO ip?

Yes, you can also delete the certificate in the acme-tiny directory and then issue another SSL certificate.

Let me know how it goes.


Thanks for replying back.

The DNS should be pointed correctly, usually you just need to point the A record of the domain name to the DigitalOcean IP address.

Two things to check:

  1. Make sure the SSL was issued for both www and non www version of your domain name.
  2. If you’re using nginx, make sure to check the config file and see if the domain is configured properly, because it should include both domains:


Hi, Yes, I have two domains listed in the result in One is the IP address of DigitalOcean with A+ Grade, and the other address is the one in Godaddy with no grade. An additional message says “Certificate not valid for domain name”…

I am not sure about the pointing. What I have done is in godaddy create a new A record to root and the DO ip address…

I have also tried changing the nameservers but same result.

I suppose, I am doing the IP pointing wrong. Is the only thing I can think of.
