Letsencrypt Using two domains error


Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better.

I ran this command:
It produced this output:

My operating system is (include version):
centos 6.5
My web server is (include version):
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
godaddy domain
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):

I use one domain and I want to add one more domain.::cry:


I think the problem is that you typed -debug instead of --debug and it thought you wanted to generate a certificate for a domain named ebug :slight_smile:


Good catch, @jmorahan!



I have a suggestion. When this error happens “DNS name does not have enough labels”, it would be better if the error message contains the wrong domain name, like: "DNS name: ‘debug’ does not have enough labels ".

That would help the user understand and solve the problem.

There are a lot of users seeing this error.

about this? (That error comes entirely from the CA side.)

I’m working on something where Certbot will try to direct people to a web page that will help give more detailed advice about specific ACME errors (especially about failed challenge validations, but maybe about other topics too?). So, maybe in connection with that I should try to go through all of the ACME errors and see if it appears that they could be made more helpful.


I just created an issue:

Please follow #2526 for this. Thanks everyone!
