Unable to Renew?

Certificate signature failed. If you supplied your own CSR make sure the domains on it match what you put on SSLForFree. If there is a rate limiting error at the end of this paragraph certificates per Domain is currently 5 per 7 days. Try asking Lets Encrypt to increase the limit or wait 7 days. Rate limits should increase in the near future. { “type”: “urn:ietf:params:acme:error:malformed”, “detail”: “Error finalizing order :: policy forbids issuing for: “xn–fct27t3xv””, “status”: 400 }


Please fill in this form for us to help you.

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. crt.sh | example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

Hi @dgqjj,

It looks like you are trying to get a certificate for the bare name “家教网”, rather than a fully-qualified domain name like “家教网.cn” or something. You’ll need to enter your complete domain name in order to obtain a certificate.

If you do enter the domain in the xn-- form, please make sure that you are also entering it with two hyphens (xn--) and not an en dash (xn–). However, I think the important problem is that you’re missing the top-level domain.

Discourse sometimes displays the double hyphen as a long dash.
The missing TLD is a definite problem.
