Google introduce domain verification with CNAME!Posted by on August 6, 2012 09:03 AM
Google Webmaster Tools has introduced a new domain verification feature by using CNAME records. Google also added that this method will be quite suitable for users who were unable to create DNS TXT records for their domains. There is a four step verification process (for domains as well as subdomains).
The four steps as advised by Google are:
- “Add the domain example.com to your account either in Webmaster Tools or directly on the Verification Home page.
- Select the Domain Name Provider method of verification, then select your domain name provider that manages your DNS records or "Other" if your provider is not on this list.
- Based on your selection you may either see the instructions to set a CNAME record or see a link to the option Add a CNAME record. Follow the instructions to add the specified CNAME record to your domain’s DNS configuration.
- Click the Verify button.”
