Delete Limitation

I accidentally registered a certificate for my domain 5 times, please, can I somehow remove the limit from my prods domains? I really need no way to wait a week

Hi @ToShuk

please read some basics:

If you’ve hit a rate limit, we don’t have a way to temporarily reset it. You’ll need to wait until the rate limit expires after a week. We use a sliding window, so if you issued 25 certificates on Monday and 25 more certificates on Friday, you’ll be able to issue again starting Monday.

Then answer the questions of the standard template:


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. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), 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:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or 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):

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

Okay, Thanks,

I use Letterscrypt in my Kubernetes. I accidentally registered more than 5 times a certificate on my 2 domains. I really need certificates on these domains, I would like to ask to remove the limits from them, now I just register the certificates and this will not happen again

I did not know that there is staging have. I accidentally used production. All the manipulations I performed with my Ingress controller in Kubernetes

May I ask to remove the limits for me, unlock my domains, please! i can’t wait a week

That’s not possible.

However, as the page explains, you can bypass the duplicate certificate rate limit by issuing certificates that are not duplicates – for example, by adding a new subdomain, or removing one, or splitting one certificate into two, or combining two into one. If your software supports it, that would work.
