Remove Arbitrary limit on number of Custom Domains for a Paid Account

The doc talks about a limit of 4 custom domains with certificates here:


That same doc used to say something like "If you need more than 4, contact Bluemix to get more for a fee";  can't recall the exact words... that history is not in git.    And that confused everyone, including me, as I'd work such a support ticket if it was opened (there was no process for this, or way to do this, which is why it got removed).


The limit of 1 for a Trial account and 4 for a paid account is managed ONLY by the Bluemix UI.  The BX CLI does not enforce such limits.   I've created 5 custom domains with certs in both a Trial account and a Paid account (see attachments).


I don't understand why there is an arbitrary limit;  suggest removing it or making it large enough to accommodate more clients with reasonable needs (e.g. - allow for 10 or more as the limit).

    Limitation of 4 certs/custom domains per Org is very restrictive. Either remove this limitation altogether, or at-least provide ability to add additional custom domains for a fee.

    Amod  - this might be more under Karna because of the certs, but not 100% sure

    Same here. 4 is just not enough.

    This has been addressed;  the new limit should be 25 certificates.

    ... that may be only for paid accounts.
