Accounts per ip


I was reading the rate limiting docs, to get my head around the “Accounts per ip” limit i need some further explanation.

Some background, where are utilising cert-manager for k8s which creates an account pr cert-manager instance. meaning that each of our k8s clusters have its own account.

What does it mean when it states:

You can create a maximum of 10 Accounts per IP Address per 3 hours.

That i can only contact lets encrypt with 10 unique accounts per 3 hours?
Or the actual creation of 10 accounts per 3 hours? (meaning that i can have 100’s of k8s clusters with a unique account, as long as i dont create more than 10 every 3 hours).

Best regards and thank you in advance

It’s the creation of accounts that is rate limited, yes.
