We are a government organization hosting websites for government websites. Our domain is mizoram.gov.in and under this domain, we are hosting around 180 subdomains, for example dict.mizoram.gov.in, msegs.mizoram.gov.in.
We weren’t aware of the rate limit last week (8th September 2016), so we generated 20 certificates for 20 sub domains under mizoram.gov.in, then we reach the issuance limit. Later, I found that we can generate one certificate for multiple sub domains. So here’s my questions.
Since, it’s already Monday (2016-09-12), as per documentation my issuance limit should be reset now and I should be able to generate more certificate under mizoram.gov.in, but I am still getting issuance limit message when I tried to generate single certificate for multiple subdomains. Did I miss anything here, please help?
Each of our subdomains are hosted under different directories and they are independent of each other. The directory structure is something like for example
mizoram.gov.in => /home/mizgov/public_html
dict.mizoram.gov.in => /home/dict/public_html
msegs.mizoram.gov.in => /home/msegs/public_html
What is the correct way of generating single certificate for these subdomains and directories?
To use staging environment, i just added --test-cert parameter to the command, is this sufficient?
