Could not issue a Let's Encrypt

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: Install

It produced this output: Lets Encrypt certificate
This certificate will no longer be used for
Error: Could not issue a Let’s Encrypt SSL/TLS certificate for SKYLIST.AERO.
Install certificate failure: Unable to set certificate name :

My web server is (include version):101domain (Plesk)

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: 101domain (Plesk)

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

You should modify the TITLE to something more like:
Plesk (101domains) install cert failure: Unable to set cert name

(It should attract more attention from the ones that can help the most)
If all else fails, try the Plesk Forum

There are too many certs recently issued for that exact domain.
The error message may be inaccurate.
You could try renewing a new cert that contains the WWW; which would be seen as a different request and falls under a different set of rate limits.
Or include a name that you haven’t issued yet (like:
You can try
“ +”
“ + +”
“ + + +”

NOTE: Adding new combinations won’t bypass rate limits altogether.
It just hits a different limit - I think that one is 20 certs per week per domain.
Until you figure out how to get it to work, you might also want to try using the LE STAGING/TEST system instead of the LE LIVE/PRODUCTION system.
I don’t know how that can be done using Plesk.
Otherwise, I suggest you read about rate limits and understand them before proceeding.

Thank you for the info! I really appreciate the input, very helpful.
