Hi @pecka33,

Please see

Revoking certificates does not reset rate limits , because the resources used to issue those certificates have already been consumed.

If you’ve hit a rate limit, we don’t have a way to temporarily reset it. You’ll need to wait until the rate limit expires after a week. We use a sliding window, so if you issued 25 certificates on Monday and 25 more certificates on Friday, you’ll be able to issue again starting Monday. You can get a list of certificates issued for your registered domain by searching on, which uses the public Certificate Transparency logs.

You can avoid the Duplicate Certificate limit by creating a certificate that includes an additional subdomain (in addition to www) so that the list of names in the certificates isn’t exactly the same was it was for the earlier certificates.
