Error creating new order too many certificates already issued for

I should create more than 50 third level separate domain certificates. I built a few dozens already. 9 are left and they return this error during their creation. I understand that I hit a limit. Will this limit timeout someday? Or I hit some hard limit for domain
Best Regards,

My domain is:

I ran this command: certbot certonly --keep-until-expiring --webroot -w /somesecretpath -d

It produced this output: Requesting a certificate for
Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
An unexpected error occurred:

Ask for help or search for solutions at See the logfile /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log or re-run Certbot with -v for more details.

My web server is (include version): nginx-1.20.2

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): FreeBSD 12

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: me

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): certbot 1.21.0

You can add 50 certificates per week. (Renewals don't count.)

Read the page the error message linked:

... or, you can add several names to a certificate (up to 100)

... or, you can use a wildcard certificate
