Rate limit reached - Can it be reset before the week is up

Hi Guys,
Maybe a silly but hopefully a quick question.
I have been playing around with my FreeBSD system running multiple websites
The websites are all on my internal network, with Pfsense port redirection to specific servers.
I own and have the one domain “rindy.me”.
So long story short I was playing around issuing myself certificates with Certbot.

I obviously played with them too much, making too many requests. I eventually got the error specifying that there were too many requests for my domain.

Now Ive figured out the settings that i need and have that down pat but Ive obviously reached the limit for certs to be issued for my domain.

I was wondering is there a way to reset this so i can request a certificate one more time for my domain or will i just have to wait it out.

Thanks in advance.

The only way to dodge the rate limit would be to issue a certificate with a third FQDN on it, like *.x.rindy.me. That way, it would be counted against a separate rate limit bucket, with respect to the Duplicate Certificates per Week limit.

Rate Limit Current Status Domain
50 Certificates per Registered Domain per week OK (7 / 50 this week.) rindy.me
5 Duplicate Certificates per week Limit exceeded. Next issuable at 21 Aug 2020 22:48:49 UTC *.rindy.me, rindy.me
