Policy forbids issuing for name irs.sk

I have a problem with generation of SSL certificate for domain: irs.sk (and also: www.irs.sk) which is website of Slovak company providing public emergency services in our country.

Error message is:
new-authz error: {
“type”: “urn:acme:error:rejectedIdentifier”,
“detail”: “Error creating new authz :: Policy forbids issuing for name”,
“status”: 400

Is there any chance to unblock this domain and generate the cert or have to buy some commercial one for this domain?

Thank you for any response and help.

Best regards, 1ohnny

It’s blocked due to being a high risk domain (Internal Revenue Service). You may email security@letsencrypt.org to ask for an exception.


Hi, thank you very much for your reply. Honestly I’ve never heard about that U.S. government institution before, so I think, it would be fair to not block any other national tld’s with this abbreviation. I will write to email.
Thank you, again.
