A rate limit prevents DCV

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. crt.sh | example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: sherifshalaby.tech

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version): apache

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): centos7

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: dedicated server

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): root

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): whm/cpanel

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): No

Looking at your cert history at https://crt.sh/?q=sherifshalaby.tech&deduplicate=Y it looks like you're hitting the 50 certs per domain per week limit.

Please see Rate Limits - Let's Encrypt for more information.


how i fixed that?

All should be explained in the linked documentation. If you have any specific questions, fire away, but generic "how do I fix that" should be explained plentiful there.


it is not a generic question!
it is a direct question: I need to increase the limit of creating ssl per week!

Dear Osiris:
it is not a generic question
it is a direct question: I need to increase the limit of creating SSL
per week

can you help me via zoom?

This is also explained in the rate limit documentation. Note: the processing of the rate limit exemption forms can take some time I'm afraid. Also note that most users here on the Community are just volunteers and not actually Let's Encrypt employees.

It's not possible, as explained in the documentation, to manually increase or "reset" the limit on short notice.


I know that this is the community, I do appreciate the efforts done by everyone here, yet, being a community doesn't mean deeper support is impossible or restricted
Anyway, thank you for your hints

To keep the cost "free" Let's Encrypt has a small staff and relies on this community and automation. People needing rate limit exceptions occurs regularly and is handled with the Rate Limiting Form described in the pages Osiris already linked. In case you missed the link for this form, it is (here) described in the Overrides topic (link here).


Help you... fill out the form?


You have hit the Rate Limits see https://letsdebug.net/sherifshalaby.tech/1376967 and https://tools.letsdebug.net/cert-search?m=domain&q=sherifshalaby.tech&d=168

The most effective thing to do, to get a Let's Encrypt issued certificate, is wait.
While waiting please read the Documentation - Let's Encrypt

And honor @rg305's request
