Godaddy certificate help???
Posted on 2010-09-16
I have created a Go Daddy certificate and assigned it to Remote.CompanyName.Co.Uk. However the autherization has failed with go daddy. some of the details dont match. Go Daddy has sent a email explaining how we can create a cname with a special code (which they attached with the email) to prove we have control of the site.
These are the instructions go daddy sent us.
Domain Zone Control Validation w/CNAME
1. Access the DNS records for your domain name and create a "CNAME" (defined below) using the special code you received in your email.
2. After you have created the CNAME using the special code, log into your account, and click on the pending request for your common name. You will be presented with several options. Click on the link “Domain Zone Control w/CNAME”. If your CNAME entry is unable to be verified, you will be presented with an error, otherwise you will be taken back to the main certificate management page. Please allow a few minutes for the status of your account to be updated.
What would we enter for our cname? lets say our special code was xxxx. On our DNS control panel provided by our suppier we have "Origin", "Target", TTL?
