I have been asked to create a txt record for google verification however google asks to create it with the hostname set to @ or blank however this just throws up an error. The only way I can create a txt record is by using the domain name. That doesn't work for google verirfication as it seems it cannot detect the txt record.

Is there a way around this?

thanks

Hello :)

What method are you using to create the "TXT" record? Please try with:

"WHM Home » DNS Functions » Edit DNS Zone"

Let us know the outcome.

Thank you.
