rateLimited issue

I am getting the following error - on the first attempt to get a cert on a specific instance. Can anyone assist?

Hi @hbellur,

You will need to share the actual domain name you are trying to issue for in order for someone to help you with this error.

The domain is “xrtc.cloud”

Hi @hbellur,

Have you reviewed our rate limits documentation? You are encountering the "Certificates per registered domain" rate limit of 20 certificates per week.

There appears to be 20 certificates for subdomains of xrtc.cloud that were issued on 17-11-19 and so no further certificates for xrtc.cloud can be issued at the present time.

Missed reading the documentation. Appreciate pointing me to the documentation. Thanks
