Validation Note: Before you can pre-validate a domain for TLS/SSL validation, you must first submit its organization for prevalidation. Additionally, if you want the domain to be used for OV, EV, and/or Private SSL certificates, you must submit its organization for those matching validation types.
Demonstrate control over your domain by creating a DNS CNAME record containing a randomly generated token. The CNAME record is used to point token.domain to DigiCert (dcv.digicert.com).
In your CertCentral account, in the left main menu, go to Certificates > Domains.
On the Domains page, click New Domain.
On the New Domain page, under Domain Details, enter the domain and organization information.
Under Validate This Domain For, check the validation types you want the domain validated for:
Under Domain Control Validation (DCV) Method, select DNS CNAME Record.
Note: The default DCV method is Verification Email.
When you are finished, click Submit for Validation.
