[Support Guide] Verifying domain ownership for Netlify custom domain

When you’re setting up the custom domain for your site, we may have to ask you to verify that you own the domain. To do this, you’ll have to create a DNS record that we then check:

  1. Go to do your domain host (Bluehost, Gandi, Google, etc.)
  2. Add a TXT record with the following characteristics:
  • Name: verified-for-netlify (some DNS hosts will want the dot at the end, so try creating the record both with and without it if the first attempt doesn’t work)
  • TTL: default
  • Text/Value: link to your public post or case number if we’re helping you in our helpdesk
  1. In the thread or ticket where we asked for this record, tell us you’ve done it so we know we can move forward :slight_smile:

We borrow this pattern from a small company you may have heard of, which has host-specific docs if you are having trouble finding where to add the TXT record we are asking for: Verify your domain (host-specific steps) - Google Workspace Admin Help
