Domain Forbidden

I am trying to create an SSL certificate for the domain nans.gov.sy, I ran this command

certbot --apache -d nans.gov.sy -d www.nans.gov.sy

And got the following error:

Error creating new order :: Cannot issue for "nans.gov.sy": The ACME server refuses to issue a certificate for this domain name, because it is forbidden by policy

My web server is : Apache/2.4.18 (Ubuntu)

The operating system my web server runs on is: Ubuntu 16.04.1

I can login to a root shell on my machine

The version of my client is : certbot 0.31.0

Please help

Hi @mouhsen

there is an internal list of high value domain names. The error message looks like gov.sy is on that list.

There

Can you please email unblock-request@letsencrypt.org with the details of your request? Thanks!
