Creating a TXT Record for SSL Validation

To validate domain name control for your SSL, you can use a TXT (Text) record. TXT records are part of your domain name's DNS that don't affect your website. They only display information that can be read by a DNS lookup. For more information, see What is DNS?

Before you begin, ensure you have the verification TXT value sent to you after you requested an SSL.

NOTE: You must use our nameservers to complete these steps. If you use a different set of nameservers, contact those nameservers' administrator for more information on adding a TXT record. Some nameserver providers do not support TXT records.

To Add a TXT Record to Verify Your Domain Name

  1. Log in to your Account Manager.
  2. Next to Domains, click Launch.
  3. From the DNS menu, select DNS Manager. The DNS Dashboard displays.
  4. For the domain name you want to add a TXT record for, click Edit Zone. The Zone File Editor displays.
  5. Click Add Record.
  6. From the Record type list, select TXT (Text).
  7. Complete the following fields:
    • TXT Name (Host) — Type DZC.
    • TXT Value — Enter the entire TXT value sent to you after you requested an SSL.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Click Save Zone File, and then click OK. The new record displays in the TXT (Text) section.
