Thank you for following up with me. I just did 4 certificates successfully, but the 5th one failed with the same error message again. There were several second between attempts and I tried a different domain each time to avoid hitting the usage limit. The domain was not the cause though, it can happen on any of them. I also checked the dns right now, and 184.108.40.206 is the correct ip and the root and www domains work correctly.
Because I have a custom made application, I am using the webroot plugin on purpose to automate this. My tool generates these commands, so I can’t type them wrong between attempts. Our web server is not even close to being at capacity on our end - Its a high end dedicated server mostly running on idle. The dns is hosted by amazon route53 for this domain.
Here is the unmodified commands and error response:
