Failed to determine Route 53 hosted zone ID

I’m trying to run Caddy for the first time, I have ports 80 and 443 open, both pointing to the local server at With route53 as my TLS provider, I’m getting this error message:

Activating privacy features...2017/01/16 20:53:09 [] failed to get certificate: Error presenting token: Failed to determine Route 53 hosted zone ID: Zone not found in Route 53 for domain

What does this error mean and how do I fix it?

Route 53 doesn’t currently have a zone file for, so it can’t add the necessary records. This might be because you haven’t added to Route 53 in the AWS account you’re using to authenticate against with Caddy.
