Unable to verify domain ownership.


I'm working on a google site for my daughter and trying to point her domain to that site. However, Google require proof of ownership and depite adding the necessary txt record and a CNAME to the DNS records, google fails to verify ownership.

Any ideas?



Hi @abercamper,


Thanks for posting. How long ago did you add the DNS and TXT records? DNS changes can take up to 48 hours to take effect, if it has been over 48 hours you should contact live support so they can take a closer look at the situation.

It hasn't taken 48 hours for a DNS change to propagate since around 2005, make a change to GoDaddy DNS Google DNS often has it within 15 seconds.
