Rate limit question renewal

I currently have the Let’s Encrypt through my host, will wildcard do away with rate limits? And will the wildcard certification be joined with the current one on renewal?

Hi @Tommy3,

I think the rate limits will still be in place just as they are now, but each certificate that contains a wildcard will only count as one certificate for rate limit purposes, even though the wildcard can match an almost unlimited number of names.

I don’t think there are any hosts that have finished the ACMEv2 integration to allow them to get wildcard certificates. If your host is doing some kind of custom implementation, you should ask the host how the certificate management will be handled, because there are no requirements about this from the certificate authority side.
