{Error creating new authz :: Policy forbids issuing for name}

My domain is:
vpn3389.cloudapp.net

I ran this command:
acme.sh --issue -d vpn3389.cloudapp.net --nginx

It produced this output:
Wed Oct 25 15:47:18 UTC 2017] new-authz error: {“type”:“urn:acme:error:rejectedIdentifier”,“detail”:“Error creating new authz :: Policy forbids issuing for name”,“status”: 400}

My web server is (include version):
NGINX 1.13

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
ubuntu 16

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
Microsoft Azure

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

@cpu whether this restriction can possibly be removed.

Hi @Velunce,

Apologies for the delays, I was out of the office last week.

Unfortunately this restriction can’t be removed except by request from the domain owner (Microsoft).

I recommend that you provision your own domain name and point it at the Azure instance. You will be able to issue for your own domain without any policy errors.
