To renew a manual certificate, you have to run something like the original command you used to create it. It was probably something like “certbot certonly --manual -d '*.therightdoctors.com'”.

Fully automated renewal requires that your DNS provider and ACME client both support it.

Certbot doesn’t currently have a GoDaddy DNS plugin (though there is an open pull request). You could switch to a supported DNS service, or switch to an ACME client like acme.sh that supports it, or take a third option like using acme-dns.
