Removal from blocklist


The IP “” unfortunately sent many requests to LetsEncrypt. We have fixed the cause.

We ask for an unblocking/delisting.

Thank your very much! :wink:


I don’t think there is ip limit per for request, just limit per account and account per ip.
300 New Orders per account per 3 hours, and 10 accounts per id. try create a new account and retry?


There’s … not a limit exactly but a mechanism that blocks IP addresses that generate “ridiculously excessive traffic” (the wording used in the error message).

If you got that, the block doesn’t expire and @lestaff will have to unblock it manually.


Sorry guys, this is the message.

string(183) "Your IP,, has been blocked due to ridiculously excessive traffic. Once this is corrected you may request this be reviewed on our forum "

How exactly can I request the unblock?


You just did :slight_smile: (but we moderators can’t unblock it; you’ll have to wait for LE staff to respond)


Hi @andre_m_w,

I can help you with this. Can you confirm you’ve upgraded your ACME client or otherwise investigated and fixed the cause of the excessive traffic?

Sorry, I re-read your original post and see you said “We have fixed the cause”. I’ll start working on the unblock.



Hi again @andre_m_w,

Your IP has now been unblocked. Thanks!
