Too many certificates already issued for

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help.

My domain is:

I ran this command:

It produced this output:
Too many certificates already issued for

My web server is (include version):

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
CentOS Linux 7.9.2009

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):
Plesk Obsidian v18.0.45

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

A few weeks ago, a notification appeard on the dashboard of my server. It says, that the default host name will change on 01.08. and the old one will no longer be available anymore.

So I decided to update the hostname on Plesk which worked fine with a few issued I fixed by myself.
But unfortunately, I could'nt renew the SSL certificate for the Plesk url itself. Before it was an url like "" (where *** is the ip of my server). The new url will look like "".

When trying to renew the certificate, it'll give me the following error:

Type: urn:ietf:params:acme:error:rateLimited
Status 429
Detail: Error creating new order :: too many certificates already issued for see

Any ideas how to fix that issue? Thank you.

6 Likes is one of GoDaddy's primary operating domains.
