Your DNSSEC Configuration is broken.

It looks like you had DNSSEC Set up at your old DNS Host. Not all DNS Resolvers validate DNSSEC, some ISP-operated Resolvers don’t, but most Public ones and Certificate Providers do, which will prevent them from resolving your site/issuing a certificate.

You’ll want to either outright disable DNSSEC, or enable DNSSEC with Cloudflare and update your DNSSEC configuration with the information Cloudflare gives you:

These changes to your DNSSEC Configuration can be done at your Registrar, Namecheap.

After you make these changes to fix your DNSSEC Configuriation, the certificate issuance should retry after a bit and succeed. You can use the dnsviz.net tool and click “Update Now” to confirm you fixed the issue, no “BOGUS” status/notices should appear. It will take a bit for changes you make at your registrar to apply though.


Looks like you have invalid DNSSEC records with your registrar. You’ll want to remove those. It may take up to 12 hours for that propagate.



Hi, we do not use DNSSEC on Namecheap so I’m even more confused now https://i.imgur.com/JwSXUaC.png it is possible that this was turn on when we purchased the domain from google many months back but it’s clearly turned off in google.

This domain was transferred to Namecheap from Google around 6 days ago.

any further thoughts?

Hi there,

I do not have DNSSEC set up with Namecheap at the time of writing the original post, could this still be set up in the old Google Domains where the domain was originally hosted?
