In GoDaddy how to validate a Domain For AWS ACM

0 votes

They have provided me the following to be used:

Name: xxx.mydomain.com.  [Host field on GoDaddy]
Value: xxx.acm-validations.aws. [Points to field on GoDaddy]
Type: CNAME

I have requested an SSL certificate from AWS and I opted for DNS validation. Now they are asking me to add a CNAME record to validate.

Now whenever I provide this using GoDaddy DNS interface, it throws an error saying for 'Points to' field:

Enter either @ or a valid host name such as: "subdomain.domain.tld"

Did anyone encounter this issue on GoDaddy DNS entries?

For validate www.example.com you have to write just the first part of xxx3.www.example.com. without the domain name and without suffix dot, but including www. Like this:

TYPE: CNAME
NAME: xxx3.www
VALUE: xxx4.acm-validation.aws

You can test above configuration after some minutes with:

dig TXT +short +noshort xxx1.example.com

dig TXT +short +noshort xxx2.www.example.com
