Reach rate-limits

Hello team,

My domain is: webnutshell.com

Today I run into an issue while requesting a certificate a couple of times, where it said that I exceeded the limit.

I was checking https://crt.sh/?q=%webnutshell.com and I have 35 certificates created, and from what I read, the limit is 50 / week.

Could anyone help me with this, please?

Thanks,
Alex

You can create 5 identical certificates, not 50. 50 per domain, but that requires different subdomain names.

So use one of these certificates instead of creating the next.

Thank you for your quick response, the problem is that I lost all my certificates, including the private key while testing my stuff, because I was not aware of this limit.

Is there a way to get the latest certificate via e-mail or something, to be able to continue my work?

Without the private key the public part isn't relevant.

So you have to wait.

…and use the staging environment when you’re testing–that’s what it’s for.
