Too many certificates issued for the exact set of domains

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

I ran this command: lentsencrypt.exe

It produced this output:
Too many certificates already issued for the exact set of domains

My web server is (include version): iis 8

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Server 2012

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: on self managed server

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

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


This means you hit the rate limit for certificates issued for this domain.
Please wait one week before try again.

Thank you

Hi ,
Is there anyway we can get the block removed.

You can issue certificates sooner if they also include other domains or subdomains in the same certificate.

Hi ,

How do i go about doing that.

Thank you in advance

When you used letsencrypt.exe you had to specify which domains should be covered by the certificate. If you can create a subdomain under your domain in DNS and then add that to the list of domains, you can issue that other certificate without waiting a week.
