Is it possible to unblock site from SSL requests?

You can not request temporary rate limit requests.

No problem @stevenzhu thanks for the quick reply. Appreciate all that you guys do over here. I’ll suggest to him he pays for the premium SSL solution with siteground or waits the 7 days.

If your friend has already created 5 certificates, why not use one of them?

Good point there, I’m not sure he has access to them as he did it via Siteground. There’s no SSL certificates available in his Siteground SSL manager panel. I’ll tell him to ask Siteground if they have any of the SSLs available too.

It’s possible he didn’t create them, the malware did, but I don’t know, I will ask him and make sure. Thank you for the contribution @JimPas!:slight_smile:

Siteground generally create these certificates automatically…
So it might be possible they still hold a copy of that certificate.
P.S. You can also ask him to apply for a trial certificate at any CA (the ones without the need of credit card) and replace it with Let’s Encrypt certificate once the rate limit is over.
