Certbot crontab renew domains after manual execution

Hi Friends,
a simple clarification:

if I manually run certbot for example:

certbot certonly --webroot -w /var/www/letsencrypt --expand -d server.foo.org -d server2.foo.org server3.foo.org

and a month later again, but with less domains, ex:

certbot certonly --webroot -w /var/www/letsencrypt --expand -d server.foo.org server2.foo.org

Certbot crontab will try to renew all three domains or only (from the last certbot) two domains?

This is my Certbot crontab:

/usr/bin/certbot renew --renew-hook "/usr/sbin/service apache2 reload" --quiet

many thanks!!


Renewal is decided on certificates, not domains. You can list the certificates and the included domains with the command certbot certificates. This list is relevant for renewal decision.
