CertCentral: Bulk domain validation support for DNS TXT and DNS CNAME DCV methods
DigiCert is happy to announce that CertCentral bulk domain validation now supports two more domain control validation (DCV) methods: DNS TXT and DNS CNAME.
Remember, domain validation is only valid for 397 days. To maintain seamless certificate issuance, DigiCert recommends completing DCV before the domain's validation expires.
Don't spend extra time submitting one domain at a time for revalidation. Use our bulk domain revalidation feature to submit 2 to 25 domains at a time for revalidation.

CertCentral: Automatic DCV checks – DCV polling
We are happy to announce we've improved the domain control validation (DCV) process and added automatic checks for DNS TXT, DNS CNAME, and HTTP practical demonstration (FileAuth) DCV methods.
This means, once you've placed the fileauth.txt file on your domain or added the random value to your DNS TXT or DNS CNAME records, you don't need to worry about signing in to CertCentral to run the check yourself. We will run the DCV check automatically. Although, you can still run a manual check, when needed.
DCV polling cadence
After submitting your public SSL/TLS certificate order, submitting a domain for prevalidation, or changing the DCV method for a domain, DCV polling begins immediately and runs for one week.
*After Interval 5, we stop checking. If you have not placed the fileauth.txt file on your domain or added the random value to your DNS TXT or DNS CNAME records by the end of the first week, you will need to run the check yourself.
For more information about the supported DCV methods:
We moved the CertCentral DV Certificate Enrollment guide to https://docs.digicert.com/certcentral/documentation/dv-certificate-enrollment/.
A pdf version of the guide is still available (see link at the bottom of the Introduction page).
Additionally, we updated and added instructions to cover the supported DCV methods for DV certificates in CertCentral.
