There were too many requests error

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. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: orbit8.com

I ran this command: certbot certonly --manual -d *.orbit8.com -d orbit8.com --agree-tos --no-bootstrap --manual-public-ip-logging-ok --preferred-challenges

It produced this output: An unexpected error occurred:
There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new order :: too many failed authorizations recently: see https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/
ges dns-01 --server https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/directory

My web server is (include version): NA

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: godaddy

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

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

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): certbot 0.27.0

Hi @sureshkachwa

looks like you have created only one TXT entry - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=orbit8.com#txt

Your command has two domain names.

So two different entries with the same domain name _acme-challenge.orbit8.com and two different TXT entries are required.

If you overwrite the first entry with the second, the validation fails.

Wait one hour, start again, add both entries,recheck your domain to see, if you have now two rows with

looks good, correct length, correct characters

If yes, next step.
