Malicious certificate issuance to my domain

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help.

Domain Validated certificates (like Let's Encrypt provides) are issued on the basis of control, not ownership. It's very likely that your domain registrar, DNS provider, CDN, Web Application Firewall provider, hosting provider, or site designer had the certificate issued. Many such providers automatically request Let's Encrypt certificates on their customers' behalf.

Our documentation provides more details about how we validate control of domains:

If you wish to exercise more control over validation, we recommend adding CAA records:
