    This is correct for the initial installation or manual reissue, but it appears that the current implementation of Let's Encrypt management tools has a limitation that it can not automatically renew a wildcard certificate if the DNS is hosted on an external server (i.e., AWS or other cloud provider) without manually reissuing it from the domain host and manually updating the acme_challenge txt record on the external DNS every time it must be renewed.

    "Wildcard certificates will not be renewed automatically if the DNS zone is managed by an external DNS server."
