Thank you for using Lightsail.
Domain ownership is verified by adding a CNAME for the generated subdomain provided when you initiate the certificate creation process. Therefore the root domain, and any existing subdomains should be unaffected.
Read more about the verification process in our docs here: https://lightsail.aws.amazon.com/ls/docs/en/articles/verify-tls-ssl-certificate-using-dns-cname-https
Thanks for the response. I've added the two cname records to the DNS but it doesn't seem to have changed the status. Also the article you included indicates that Step 1 is to Create a DNS Zone, before adding the CNAME records. I've added a DNS Zone, but haven't updated the nameservers.

Ok, worked it out. The problem is taking literally what is presented by the Lightsail LB and adding the CNAME record. The GoDaddy system was automatically adding the domain name so the end result was incorrect.
