Domain Validation via DNS or HTML; at the first level subdomain.
I am in a situation where I have been provided the FQDN city.state.gov to use.  I need to get several certificates for city.state.gov, using DNS DV.  I do not control any of the DNS entries for the city.state.gov or state.gov, I have to send in request changes to an a DNS Admin group.  I applied for an SSL and had the state DNS admins create a DV record.  The DV record was created at the first level subdomain city.  The SSL provider needs the DV record to be located at the primary root domain level state.gov.  The State DNS Admins are unwilling to make the record at this level (same is true for the HTML method).

Does anyone know of an SSL provider that will perform DV at the subdomain city.state.gov level?

Thanks for you consideration to this question
