Changed Domain Name

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., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command: certbot

It produced this output: did not show new domain in its listing

My web server is (include version): apache 2.4.6

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: verizon

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

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

My old domain name was It was working fine. I recently switched it to Now certbot will not register it. What must I do to get certbox to work. Do I need to work on my Apache 2.4.6 virtual machine? Thanks


Do you happen to have an virtual host for the new domain? because if you do not have the virtual host contain this domain name, certbot will not be able to discover your domain…

P.S. you could also use certbot -d (your hostname) to manually request an certificate for that host. The renewal is just certbot renew

Thank you

As @stevenzhu mentioned, the place that Certbot finds your domain names automatically is your Apache configuration. If you haven’t updated your Apache configuration to reflect the new name, Certbot won’t know about it.
