SSL certificate error: Let’s Encrypt encountered an error verifying the DNS settings of your domain name. Please double check your nameserver settings and try again later.

Yep they are, I checked it on freenom

D: Sorry I’m a newbie, what should I do to fix it?

Try setting nameservers again


Looks like you have only added 1 Nameserver at Freenom, try to add both & .
Once both are added, wait for 15-60 minutes. Then go to InfinityFree Cpanel and approach to CNAME there, and both CNAME of Let’sEncrypt there.

Oh it worked! Thank you!
