Hetzner Cloud Kubernetes - Too many registrations for this IP

My domain is: miner.aoe2lobbies.net

My IP is: 116.203.144.63

I ran this command: /root/.acme.sh/acme.sh --issue --standalone -d “{DOMAIN}" -d "www.{DOMAIN}”

It produced this output:
[Sat May 25 13:06:46 UTC 2019] Standalone mode.

My web server is (include version):
/

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
Kubernetes Pod with image: mono:5.16 and some tools installed

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
Hetzner Cloud

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
I can probably get a shell to the pod and run commands manually.

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):
acme 2.7.9

I am using cloudflare dns for the domain. I use cloudflare automatic https for the main domain aoe2lobbies.net.

I want to do my own ssl for the subdomain miner.aoe2lobbies.net.

Can I somehow find out the existing registrations for the IP 116.203.144.63?

Hi @denniske1001

there is a limit:

You can create a maximum of 10 Accounts per IP Address per 3 hours. You can create a maximum of 500 Accounts per IP Range within an IPv6 /48 per 3 hours. Hitting either account rate limit is very rare, and we recommend that large integrators prefer a design using one account for many customers.

Looks like you have the wrong design.

You shouldn’t create one account per new domain name.

PS: Create one account, then use that account with different domain names + renews. So don’t create new accounts automatic.

Ah okay. I think my application restarted many times automatically and tried to register new accounts which resulted in rate limiting. I will change my design. Thanks for your help :slight_smile:
