Too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new cert

Hey guys,

Im having issues with cerbot. I had to reinstall and deploy several droplets on Digital Ocean Cloud for the same domain, each time I followed:


If someone could advise me when I am able to create a new cert or how I could link my domains with an existing one. I would like my site to be secure.

Thanks in advance. Waiting for a response!

Hi @loudway,

However, with this particular rate limit, you could add an additional domain (like and issue a certificate immediately for all three names, because it wouldn’t be the “exact set of domains”.
