Too many certificates (10) already issued

How could i solve this issue. or When will the ratelimit for this domain be reset?

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:

An unexpected error occurred: There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new order :: too many certificates (10) already issued for this exact set of domains in the last 168 hours: see

My web server is (include version):

golang native 

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

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


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):

Please use one of the previously issued TEN (!!!) certificates.


Sorry, I've lost the previous certs. :frowning:

Then you'll have to retrieve them from a (very) recent backup.


I cannot find any previous cert files in the backup images. :frowning:
If there is no way to reset ratalimit, at least can i know when it reset?

Best guess, you will be able to issue a certificate in a couple of days, and it will reset a week after that. letsdebug-toolkit


Also please use the Staging Environment - Let's Encrypt when testing/experimenting.


As a workaround, you could add an additional subdomain to the certificate. I.E. create a cert that covers both and, or whatever you like. The rate limit you hit applies to certs with exactly identical sets of domains, so that would work. (And as others have said, make sure you use the staging environment when testing, and don't delete issued certificates without backing them up.)
