Let's Encrypt ratelimits calculation



first of all, for this question the pre-entered form to help me better is not necessary :wink:

So: I crashed into the maximum amount of requesting a certificate in one week. When trying to create one the system also tells me that.
The interesting point: Everytime when I try to request a new certificate and it fails, does this count for the ratelimits too? Or is it ignored?

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:




Which limit are you hitting now?

This depends on where you failed.
If you failed during validation (e.g. DNS or file error) it counts.
If you failed during the beginning (e.g. rate limited) it doesn’t count towards the failed attempts since it’s failed validation attempts.
