Can't get one of my certificates to renew

Note that I can successfully renew other domains on this server. It is just this one (with the wildcard) that is giving me trouble.

My domain is:

I ran this command: sudo certbot certonly --preferred-challenges=dns -d *

It produced this output:
Plugins selected: Authenticator standalone, Installer None
Starting new HTTPS connection (1):
Cert is due for renewal, auto-renewing...
Renewing an existing certificate for *
Performing the following challenges:
None of the preferred challenges are supported by the selected plugin

My web server is (include version):

Apache/2.4.6 (CentOS)

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

CentOS 7

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:


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


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

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):

certbot 1.11.0

It is not possible to obtain, nor renew, a wildcard cert via standalone authentication.
Thus the error:
