I own the domain . It is registered at, and I have host a website for me with that domain name.

Now to verify my ownership of the domain name, Microsoft wants me to add a txt record at my DNS hosting provider.
Well at my registrar I am able to do that myself. allows me to add such a record. I added it, and waited more than 72 hours, nut nslookup couldnt find it and neither did MS.
In its wizard for registrars/providers Office 365 offers, but not I have now removed the new record from Hover and asked to add it, which they have just done for me.
Suppose after  a few hours the newly added DNS-record responds (with NSLookup, how can I then verify this in Office 365?
