Maximum number of CNAME records reached

I’m trying to renew my SSL certificate using the free SSL certificates tool, but when I try to add the CNAME record to verify my domain, cPanel says “Maximum number of CNAME records reached.” I tried to delete some old records but I’m still getting the same error.

Just delete some old CNAME for old ssl and stuff, easy.


Did you succeed? How many records did you have (in total and for your specific domain) when you first saw this error, and did you have after cleaning it up?

Also, it would help a lot if you could share the domain name, in case anyone needs to check or fix something.


I had deleted a few records and it didn’t change anything, but I just deleted some more records and I was finally able to create the new record. Thanks for the help!
