Domain Verification REVOCATION WARNING despite presence of TXT record,

0

On Jan 20th I created the required TXT record and verified my domain. I received a verified status.

Then on Jan 28th I received a warning that the verification would be revoked because the TXT record was no longer present. I double checked and figured maybe it was a temporary connectivity issue at Amazon or something.

Then on Feb 2nd I received a REVOCATION CONFIRMATION!!! My domain is registered and DNS hosted at Route 53 so I logged in and ran the "Test Record Set" process and received a perfect reply. My DNS Zones have not been updated since Jan 20th... So I successfully verified, didn't change a thing, and then got revoked.....Help!

I also added a screenshot of some random external DNS test tool on the internet and it was able to resolve the TXT record no problem. I really think this is a problem on the AWS side of things.

Finally figured it out. Domain verification is BY REGION. So I had initially verified in Oregon West and then learned that for the certificate feature I wanted I had to do it in Virginia East.

So my domain IS still verified in the region I need it in, and has been revoked in the region I do not need it in.

This information is in the emails from Amazon, as it says right in the subject line
"...for yourdomain.net in region US West (Oregon)"

So, my bad, but I saw a couple other posts on this subject so thought I should leave this here for the next person who makes this same oversight.
