SSL Certificate Renewal

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. |, so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Digital Ocean

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): no

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): no

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):

So in the past i used to host that website on an ubuntu server with nginx on a digital ocean droplet and i used lets encrypt for ssl. But since, i have destroyed that droplet and everything linked to that and i am now hosting my website to their new App platform which offers automatic SSL. Recently, i received an email about renewing my certificate. Do i ignore that e-mail or is there any action i should take?
I guess that renewal notice is for my old server so i think its fine to ignore it. If it expires will it affect my website which is hosted elsewhere? And if i dont need it anymore is there a way to stop those e-mail notices from being sent to me or will they stop automatically after the expiration?
Thank you in advance!


Just ignore it.

No, it won't affect.

You get normally limited amount of such notices. After the certificate expires, you won't get any more.
