I already have an origin certificate that I created and added to Siteground back in February. This is my point. Here is Siteground’s response to the issue: (Notice the part where the say I have an AAAA record in my DNS when I do not).
That’s not correct, unfortunately. When you enable their CDN (the cloud icon next to the DNS record) from their DNS manager, that also enables IP Masking. It will simply present a CloudFlare IP instead of the server IP.
Please check the following DNS results:
partyfavorz.com. 172800 IN NS anahi.ns.cloudflare.com.
partyfavorz.com. 172800 IN NS wilson.ns.cloudflare.com.
partyfavorz.com. 300 IN A 220.127.116.11
partyfavorz.com. 300 IN A 18.104.22.168
Your account’s IP is not shown anywhere. Additionally, when Let’s Encrypt tries to verify the domain, it will also look for AAAA records and give them a higher priority. When you query the CloudFlare name servers you are using for AAAA records and your domain, the following is shown:
└─▪dig -t AAAA partyfavorz.com +short
That simply makes the verification fail and causes the issue. Unfortunately, there is nothing more to add to the case as we already provided all the available options.
If you want to continue to use CloudFlare and their CDN and would like to use the Let’s Encrypt SSL we provide, you will have to manually renew it every single time.
Alternatively, you can either purchase a Premium Wildcard SSL certificate or install an alternative certificate on your account.
If you require assistance in the future, please don’t hesitate to open a new support ticket.
