Validation Note: Before you can pre-validate a domain for TLS/SSL validation, you must first submit the organization to be pre-validated. 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.
This validation method allows you to demonstrate control over your domain by creating a DNS TXT record containing a randomly generated token as the value. Once the DNS TXT record is created, DigiCert searches the domain's DNS records to confirm the presence of your verification token.
In your CertCentral account, in the sidebar menu, click Certificates > Domains.
On the Domains page, click New Domain.
On the New Domain page, under Domain Details, enter the following domain information:
Under Validate This Domain For, check the validation types you want the domain validated for:
Under Domain Control Validation (DCV) Method, select DNS TXT Record.
Note: The default DCV method is by verification email.
When you are finished, click Submit for Validation.
Create your DNS TXT record:
