I had a question about certificate renewals and adding new certificates. I am not a coder or very technical for that matter, but I was instructed by my host company to try reaching out here to see what I can find out.
So we are running a multisite that is currently running close to 200 subdomains that run LetsEncrpyt. We are continually adding new subdomains for our clients every week, so hitting 500 and beyond this year is VERY realistic.
I created 2 mass batches over 2 weeks to get certificates for all 200 subdomains. From this point forward it should only be a few new ones a week.
However, I read somewhere on these forums (I can’t find it now and don’t know how long ago it was), that when renewals go before adding new certificates, they count towards the weekly limits.
If renewals go AFTER they do not. But this seems like it will be very hard to manage when we come up on our first 2 batches renewal dates.
With that in mind, and if I understand this correctly, new certificates would be pushed out at least 3 weeks until the renewals ran.
Plus, if we get closer to 500 and beyond, wouldn’t that create a backlog of renewals that would make it almost impossible to add new certs?
I’m sure I’m missing some major things here but I need some feedback to take back to my host company to sort through this.
Thoughts or feedback is great appreciated!
