How to authenticate your domain - GoDaddy

Setting up the DNS records necessary for domain authentication

This article contains instructions on configuring DNS records necessary for domain authentication in Prowly using the GoDaddy domain provider. If you use any other domain provider or do not know how to enable authentication in Prowly, please refer to this article first.


1. After logging into your GoDaddy account, please head over to Account > My Products then click on the DNS button besides the domain you would like to authenticate:



2. Now, as in the Prowly domain authentication screen please insert each of the DNS records one-by-one as follows:

 

 

Parts underlined as green are record types and parts underlined as purple are record names. The texts in the grey boxes below are record values. These details are different for every domain therefore please treat these screenshots as an example.

This information is very important to configure the DNS records in GoDaddy properly.

In the GoDaddy DNS panel simply click on Add and insert each of the records one-by-one making sure that record types, names and values are set properly:


Simply click on Add record and repeat the process for each of the records.
While adding records you might be prompted with such a question, please make sure to check the first option - Yes, this record should be on...:

 

 

Now after you successfully configure all the DNS records, please wait up to 48 hours for all the records to be updated in the DNS zone. This is an inevitable process due to the propagation of the records.

After that time please go back to the Prowly domain authentication screen and click on Verify configuration.

 

 

After a short while you should be able to see the screen that your domain has been authenticated properly.
