ACM certificate DNS validation - guidance

0

Hello

I have created a certificate for a domain registered under GoDaddy.com

Through https://docs.aws.amazon.com/acm/latest/userguide/dns-validation.html I am following process.

To verify that I own the domain, I need to update DNS records in GoDaddy.com?

Or is it "CNAME record" field for DNS Zone

Please clarify

Hello Harsha,

Yes! we need to add the CNAME DNS record which is populated post creating the ACM certificate. Once this CNAME is added at the domain Hosted Zone, ACM will validate the same.

ex., Domain Name Record Name Record Type Record Value example.com _a79865eb4cd1a6ab990a45779b4e0b96.example.com. CNAME _424c7224e9b0146f9a8808af955727d0.acm-validations.aws.

Considering the above example, you need to add the record as below (Note to remove the tail domain name while adding, else it will add as double) _a79865eb4cd1a6ab990a45779b4e0b96.example.com and in the value _424c7224e9b0146f9a8808af955727d0.acm-validations.aws.

  • Thanks Chethan

    I have noted the details

    That means these values need to be populated in GoDaddy.com not on DNS Zone on Lightsail.

    also in certificate I have created 2 entries. abc.com and www.abc.com

    So on GoDaddy , both entries need tp be populated
