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. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

It seems you’ve already managed to get 5 certificates for that hostname already! Why not use any of them?

why are these certificates revoked?

If the private key isn’t stolen, it’s not required and not helpful if you revoke certificates.
