Namecheap Help


I really don't know what I am doing and would really appreciate some help. I am trying to use to install multiple certificates. To use the certificate for multiple domains it says to use this line (I am using Putty): --issue -d -d -d -w /home/wwwroot/

I do not understand how to use this. Do I list each domain or just the main one? If so, do I use commas and/or spaces? Do I list each domain with and without the www? Can someone give me an example of how they would type this if they had 3 or 4 domains (e.g.,,,

I have tried it many ways and I am getting this error and I do not know what it means:
Register account Error: { "type": "urn:ietf:params:acme:error:invalidEmail", "detail": "Error creating new account :: invalid contact domain. Contact emails are forbidden", "status": 400

I have asked for help on facebook and youtube, but no one replies to me.

My domain is:

There's your problem--when you installed, you gave it a bogus email address. Fix this by running --register-account -m (If that gives an error, use --update-account instead).

You list each domain name you want to be on the cert. If you want to use it with and without www., include both variants. Do it just as you indicated: -d domain1 -d domain2 etc..

I just pasted and edited that line. I couldln't figure out why it was mentioning an email because I didn't put one in. Maybe I accidentally deleted that part. Who knows what the heck it did.

I was about to pull my hair out. It sucks not knowing what I am doing.

I will give this a try.
