My hosting provider, if applicable, is: OVH

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): Yes, of course.

Hi, what command did you run? How did you create or obtain the file alessandroz.csr?

The Let’s Encrypt CA does expect a subjectAltName for each domain name that will be listed in the cert; you can’t just use the CN field to specify a requested domain.
