Delay in Let's Encrypt cert generation

I clicked on the button to provision a cert from Let’s Encrypt, and got a red “could not provision …” message.
This persisted for a number of retries, but a few minutes later I noticed my site was loading OK, and after another refresh the settings page reported that a cert was provisioned.

Is this a common experience?

Maybe there could be a “pending” message instead of the intermediate failure messages.

Hi @jean! Welcome to netlify community.

I agree, the messaging could be improved on that page. Thanks very much for the suggestion, and we will let you know when it (hopefully) gets shipped!
