Changing single SSL certificate into Wildcard

Hi everyone, please reply to this topic if you insists to help. I’m kinda new with DevOps, it was an accident while I’m trying to renew my domains with my subdomain. i successfully renew a single domain but while im trying to run wildcard command it turns out to be like this :

My domain is:

I ran this command: /usr/local/bin/certbot-auto certonly --standalone -d -d -d

It produced this output: There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new order :: too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains:

My web server is (include version): Nginx 1.17.6

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): CentOS 7

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:Godaddy

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):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): Certbot 1.4

Is there any way to expand my single certificate into wildcard certificate? so my subdomain can work properly.

If you want to create a wildcard certificate then your -d flag should be

As * is technically a new Domain Let’s Encrypt should issue the cert
