Not able to install Let's encrypt certificate: Rate limit has been exceeded

Not able to install Let's encrypt certificate: Rate limit has been exceeded

The issue may be lengthy but the entire article goes around one topic sense called “let’s encrypt certificate”. You might be well known to the ISRG (Internet security research group) who issues the TLS/SSL certificate open, automated and free to use.

They are defined to the word non-profit because the main motivation of let’s encrypt is to give absolute privacy and security for users. Using the HTTPS, one can protect their website by getting let’s encrypt certificate. Each certificate has setup with the rate limitation to give proper security to the website. In any case, if the rate limit goes out of the limitation then, of course you will get the error as below:

Error: Could not issue a Let's Encrypt SSL/TLS certificate for
The "Certificates per Registered Domain" rate limit has been exceeded for Let's Encrypt allows no more than 50 certificates to be issued per registered domain, per week.

Rate limits are created based on the account feature and IP address extension. For one IP address, one can create 10 accounts that too for per 3 hours.

Why does it get banned?

The action won’t be taken without any reason. Here, the domain rate limitation is calculated on basis of per week. The default set up for rate limitation is 50. So, whenever it goes beyond 50 then you will ban automatically without any warning. But this ban action will be temporarily only and no permanent cases.

How to resolve the problem in rate limitation?

Rate limitation used to manage their features weekly. So, for every week it get renews automatically. No solution to get ban domain as active domain. Only thing you can do is just waiting for the week to get pass.

Your rate limitation will get expired automatically after a week. In some cases, there might be a situation to issue the certificate half the count from 50 on Monday and remaining on Thursday then your new count will be started on next Monday.

And yes! You have to wait for next Thursday to get remaining certificate from the extension of Monday.

Here, no other big technical terms used only thing is wait for a week to go! Good luck!
